In total, Wednesday, eight men and eight women were arrested, all under the age of 30 years. It comes to 10 Brazilians, three French and three Belgians. The drugs were neatly divided on the left of the 16 subjects. The packets of drugs came to light during an inspection of the luggage with a scanner.
Each piece of luggage contained 16 or 17 packages of pure cocaine, and in addition, each time a package with $ 1,000 cash, a deposit that they paid. It was going to be a little more than 300 kilograms. At 50 euros per gram, is that good for a street value of 15 million euros. But usually the stuff by dealers even cut, making the price much higher.Pairs
The 16 persons were detained in the port of Santos, off the coast of Sao Paulo. The police suspect that they, by an international drugsbende are used as ‘mules’, to the drugs to transport. It is not certain whether the 16 people all knew each other, but according to the Brazilian media, there were also couples.
