Colombia seizes 12 tons of Cocaine

Cocaine was found stored underground in a banana-growing region of northwest Antioquia province.
Police seized more than 12 tons of cocaine from Colombia‘s Gulf Clan on Wednesday, the biggest haul ever. The cocaine has a U.S. market value estimated at about $360 million.
The seizure comes as the United States has raised concern over an increase in coca cultivation and as the government faces criticism from opposition lawmakers for allowing new crime gangs to fill the void left by the FARC.

The Gulf Clan is led by fugitive Dairo Antonio Usuga, known as Otoniel. The United States has offered a reward of up to $5 million for information leading to his capture or death.
