MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico’s navy seized 10 tons of synthetic drugs in a rural location near the western city of Culiacan, it announced Wednesday.
The navy said in a statement that its forces seized the drugs in large sacks and plastic drums on Tuesday in the community of Los Cedros. They also seized a dump truck.
They said the area was a site for the movement of multi-ton quantities of drugs. Western Mexico has seen industrial-scale production of methamphetamine.
The seized drugs were incinerated.
