Cocaine discovered, 1 tons worth

A truck flipped after taking a curve too fast in Bogota, Colombia Thursday, spilling nearly a ton of cocaine across a Colombian highway, MSNBC.com reported.

Police said the drugs were hidden in the truck’s walls and roof, which were ripped open during the crash.

The driver escaped any injury but was arrested immediately. Police said the drugs were destined for the northern port of Uraba, a major exit point for Colombia’s massive drug smuggling industry.

It was interesting that this story wasn’t reported on until today (Saturday) on MSNBC.com. Yahoo! News reported on the incident on early Friday morning. The article could not be found on CNN.com, interestingly.
