Paris – Police have seized 41kg of cocaine in a plane at a Paris airport and arrested six Frenchmen involved in a drug trafficking network, including three luggage handlers.
Vincent Annereau, from the Paris judicial police, says the drugs seized last Friday at Orly Airport, south of Paris, are worth more than $2.2m at current dealing prices.
Annereau said at a press conference on Thursday that the cocaine was in 41 packets divided into two suitcases that were discovered in a plane coming from the Dominican Republic.
The six suspects have been jailed.
