Colombia just seized 12 tonnes of cocaine worth £502m

Colombian police have just made the countries biggest ever cocaine bust.

They managed to seize 12 tonnes of cocaine, which was hidden under four farms in the north-west region of the country. To put that into perspective how huge this bust is, that’s the same weight as two adult elephants and more than any seizure from notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar.

The haul is believed to be around 11 million grams when broken down, having a street value of a gargantuan £502 million.

According to the U.S Drug Enforcement Administration, Columbia is one of the world’s leading producers of cocaine, producing over 800 tonnes per year.

Escobar’s Hitman: Former drug-gang killer, now loved and loathed in Colombia (RT Documentary)

John Jairo Velásquez Vásquez, aka ‘Popeye’, is something of a local hero to many in the Colombian city of Medellin. He’s stopped in the streets and asked for autographs and selfies. His celebrity is undiminished after spending 23 years in jail. In the heyday of the infamous Medellin drug cartel, he worked for Pablo Escobar as a hitman, and still says he enjoyed the job in which he tortured and murdered literally hundreds. Unsurprisingly, not everyone sees him as a hero.

How ‘El Chapo’ is Influencing LA’s Music Scene (Extra Scene from ‘Cashing In On ‘El Chapo”)

Watch the Full Length – http://bit.ly/1WrKR5W

The January 8 recapture of Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán served as a boost for the governments of Mexico and the United States, which have sought for years to bring the powerful trafficker to justice.

A day after the capture, the Chapo saga took another turn: Rolling Stone magazine published an interview Guzmán gave to actor Sean Penn. While factions in the media questioned the ethics of the article, many readers were instantly enamored with El Chapo’s choice of clothing in the story’s accompanying photos.

In this extra scene, VICE News met up with Adolfo Valenzuela, one of the brothers behind “narco-corrido” music label Twiins Enterprises, to discuss the appeal of El Chapo, and what makes him different from Pablo Escobar.

The Gangs That Inherited Pablo Escobar’s Drug Empire: Cooking with Cocaine

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

In Colombia, the heirs to Pablo Escobar’s drug empire are conducting business as usual — though with a somewhat lower profile. Today’s Medellin drug cartels are highly structured and run much like multinational corporations. But violent gangs operating in the city’s slums provide the muscle; known as combos, they’ve carved Medellin into fiefdoms, imposing invisible borders between gang territory — borders that, when ignored, often get people killed.

VICE News travelled to Medellin to meet gang members — along with top cartel leaders and assassins — who revealed the inner workings of the city’s modern-day cocaine industry.
