Hong Kong seizes another 250kg of Cocaine

Hong Kong customs officers have seized HK$240 million (US$30.5 million) worth of cocaine in a series of raids on a four-star hotel room and two flats that led to the arrest of two male foreigners. The amount of cocaine captured is at least 250kg. It was the biggest haul of the drug made by local customs officers in seven years, and is the third major cocaine bust in just two months.
The last three large cocaine seizures in Hong Kong amount to nearly 700kg – already much more than the total amount of cocaine confiscated in the city in all of 2018.
