Guatemalan police seize cocaine shipment bound for Mexico

A shipment of 300 kilos of cocaine bound from Guatemala to Mexico was seized and a truck driver arrested on smuggling charges, the National Civilian Police, or PNC, said Sunday.


The cocaine, which was worth $3.2 million, was seized Saturday night when officers searched a truck that was involved in an accident, the PNC said in a statement.

The driver, identified as 38-year-old Guatemalan citizen Dannis Lopez, hit a motorcyclist at kilometer 29 of the highway to the Pacific in Amatitlan and fled the accident scene.

The motorcyclist called police, who followed the truck until they were able to stop it.

A routine inspection turned up the narcotics, the PNC said.

The cocaine was bound for the border city of Tecun Uman, where it would be handed over to other people so it could be smuggled into Mexico, police said.

Investigators have not determined which cartel the cocaine belongs to, the PNC said.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
