Two Dutch citizens detained in France while carrying 650 kilograms of cocaine in the Ukraine-registered van. La Depeche reported this on Tuesday, October 2.

French customs office workers stopped the vehicle that allegedly carried fish; they halted the car near Toulouse, as the driver and the passenger acted nervously. During the careful check, the law enforcers found 650 kilograms of cocaine, which is worth 40 million Euros on the black market.

The two men and the vehicle were detained for further investigation.

Last month, a service dog of Ukraine's State Border Guard discovered a load of cocaine in the suitcase. The incident occurred at Boryspil airport, as the suitcase underwent a security check on its way from Warsaw to Tel Aviv. The service dog raised alarm when one of the bags passed by. During the detailed check of the suitcase, the workers found a hidden section with five wraps with a white, cocaine-like substance inside. The overall weight made 5.4 kilograms.
