Authorities confiscated 1,224 kilos (2,696 lbs.) of cocaine that arrived in Guatemala aboard a ship from Ecuador, police said Friday.
Police discovered the drugs Thursday night during an X-ray inspection of a container that had been offloaded to a warehouse in Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala’s largest Pacific port.
The container was part of a shipment of fruit bound for the United States, police said in a statement.
No arrests have been made in connection with the drugs, which police valued at more than $15.6 million.
Guatemalan authorities have confiscated upwards of 2.6 tons of cocaine so far this year.
