The procedure of the National Gendarmerie on RN 34 in Jujuy resulted in the seizure of 350 kilos of coca leaves.

Sources of the security force reported that the episode occurred when the personnel of the Squad 60 moved in an official vehicle at kilometer 1,232 of RN 34. When traveling through the bridge over the river Ledesma, in the jurisdiction of the city of Libertador General San Martín-112 km from San Salvador de Jujuy-, they observed that a Volkswagen Bora car made an untimely “U” turn, precisely by noticing the proximity of the gendarmes.

When doing this maneuver the reckless driver couldn’t avoid colliding with a pickup truck Volkswagen Amarok, and given the narrowness of the route in that sector, he could not fulfill his mission to flee of the scene.

In those circumstances, the uniformed officers intervened in the event and when they approached the vehicles involved they “saw with the naked eye” that inside the car “there were a canvas that covered merchandise, which emanated a strong characteristic smell of coca leaves “, described the GN spokesmen.

A subject was trying to evade the gendarmes when he crashed, carrying 350 kilos of coca leaves in his vehicle.
