Peruvian police discover over a hundred pounds of cocaine labeled with the Nazi flag and Hitler's name
- Peruvian police confiscated over 100 pounds of cocaine covered in Nazi flags and Hitler's name.
- Police told the Associated Press that the bricks were found on a ship headed for Belgium.
Peruvian police discovered over 100 pounds of cocaine labeled with the Nazi Germany flag and Adolf Hitler's name, according to multiple reports.
The shipment, which included 58 bricks, was found on a Liberian container ship carrying asparagus that had previously stopped in Ecuador, the Associated Press reported. A police report reviewed by the AP said the ship was heading for Belgium.
Peru's National Police Anti Drug unit carried out a raid after the ship arrived at Paita, a port on Peru's northern Pacific coast, Vice reported.
Each brick was labeled with a large image of a Nazi swastika, photos released to the AP by police show. When opened, the name "Hitler" was written on the compacted cocaine, photos show. Al Jazeera reported that "Hitler" was only written on some powder packages.
Authorities confiscated the drugs but didn't announce any arrests, AP reported.
This is the first time Paita police have found shipments featuring Nazi symbology, according to the AP.
It's unclear why the bricks were labeled with Nazi symbology, but Vice reported that it is becoming increasingly common for traffickers to label their drugs with strange images and writing to distinguish their products or destination.
