Australian giant seal helps catch a drug smuggling gang with US$ 690 million in cocaine
Australian police have thwarted a billion-dollar international drug smuggling operation, reportedly with the help of a giant seal. An international investigation into the drug gang reached its climax last week after an abandoned yacht was found on the shoreline of Stick Island, off the coast of Western Australia, sparking a search for its occupants.
“The fishing community of Geraldton played a significant role in this detection and seizure and maintained regular contact with police as this matter unfolded,” police said later in an incident report. “These people have helped protect Western Australia’s borders… and we are grateful for their efforts.” Source: https://en.mercopress.com
