Bogota - Colombian police have seized 5 tons of cocaine, with a street value of about 570,000 dollars, near the country's border with Venezuela, local media reported Thursday.
The drugs were found in the municipality of Uribia, in the La Guajira region, where they were stashed. The cocaine was to be smuggled outside Colombia, media reports said, quoting regional police commander General Oscar Gamboa.
The cocaine belonged to drug baron Daniel Rendon, alias "Don Mario," Gamboa claimed. No arrests were made.
