The capture of almost four tons of cocaine in two simultaneous raids in Ecuador has taken seizures beyond twelve tons in two months, suggesting drug trafficking through the country is on the rise.

The drugs were recovered following a raid in the outskirts of port city Guayaquil, where almost 1.5 tons was found, and another 80 miles away in the coastal city of La Libertad, where a 2.5 ton shipment was being stored, reported El Universo.

Ameripol released a report last week where it states that 120 tons of cocaine transit through the country each year, of which 20 to 25 percent is intercepted.
