The Ecuadorian police have seized more 1.5 tons of drugs in raids conducted in the west of the country.

"Half a ton of cocaine, which was intended to be sent abroad, was seized in a warehouse in Guayaquil [city]. One person was arrested," the Ecuadorian police informed on X—formerly Twitter.

During another raid, which was conducted a day ago in Guayas province, one ton of cocaine was seized, which the organizers of this drug trafficking network had planned to send to Bulgaria.
