Portugal’s PJ police seized 375 kilos of cocaine hidden in a container carrying bananas, in a logistical centre north of Lisbon, and arrested four Portuguese citizens between the ages of 33 and 56.

Two of those arrested are said to be PSP police officers based in Faro. The two officers and two civilians are suspected of being part of a transnational criminal organisation dedicated to the introduction of large quantities of cocaine from Latin America into Europe. The suspects have been remanded in custody pending trial.
