Drug smuggling suspect shot dead during interception by naval vessel Zr. Ms. Groningen | Inland

Sr.Ms. Groningen, currently sailing for the Caribbean Coastguard, intercepted a fast boat in the Caribbean Sea. It concerns a so-called go-fast that transported a large load of narcotics, presumably cocaine.

Text continues below the photo.

There were five people on board the fast boat. The moment they realized they had been caught, they threw a number of bales overboard. That part of the cargo has been lost. More than 1,620 kilograms of narcotics have been seized. The Coast Guard fired shots during the interception. One person on board the go-fast was killed.


The suspects, the remains and the contraband have been transferred by the Caribbean Coast Guard to the Curaçao Police Corps. He continues the investigation. Now that the Coast Guard was involved in the interception and someone was killed, the National Criminal Investigation Department is also involved in the investigation.
