More than 20 people were arrested this Wednesday, for their alleged involvement in crimes related to drugs and money laundering.

Among those apprehended is one of the leaders of this criminal organization, who was located in a residence in Soná, Veraguas.

These arrests were achieved through the execution of the “Fortaleza” operation, carried out in Veraguas, Herrera and Chiriquí by the Drug Prosecutor’s Office with the support of units of the National Police.

According to the investigations carried out by the Drug Prosecutor’s Office, which began in 2019, this criminal group is dedicated to receiving illicit substances from Colombia to store, guard and provide security.

Subsequently, they continued in transit with the illicit substance to Costa Rica and Central America.
