Dominican “DEA” Destroys Drugs

The Dominican National Drug Control Agency, DNCD, burned yesterday approximately $10 millions dollars in pure cocaine, marihuana, heroine and various other illegal substances and paraphenalia seized from people within the island, some caught as they tried to transport the drugs to points outside the country.

Rafael Radhames Ramirez Ferreira, Mayor General of the DNCD, said that with more resources many more drugs could be off the street.

Normally, the drugs that enter the country are brought by boat from Colombia or land from Haiti and “are for exportation.” Drugs that had tested negative for cocaine but which dealers attempted to sell in the southern region of the country, like the provinces of Azua and Bani, were also destroyed.
