50 bricks of cocaine bearing Nazi symbols seized in Peru

Fifty bricks of South American cocaine wrapped in Nazi symbols destined for Belgium were intercepted by law enforcement in Peru, authorities said.

Anti-narcotics officers discovered 58 kilograms of the packaged drugs with the Nazi swastika affixed to them, authorities said, according to AFT. Some of the packages had the word Hitler inscribed on the packed-in white powder.

A Liberian-flagged boat was allegedly transporting the drugs, authorities said.

The boat originally set sail from an Ecuadorian port city before it was searched in a Peruvian city close to the border of two countries, AFP reported.
