There were reports on Wednesday of a Finnish-registered merchant ship seized in international waters with a possible 4 tons of cocaine on board.

The ‘OCT Challenger’ was escorted to port in Almería shortly before 2am on Wednesday, after it was intercepted by Customs Authorities. There are no reports as yet on the results of the search.

The vessel was boarded 60 miles off the coast of Almería by order of the National Police in Madrid, who are in charge of the investigation.

The ship’s crew are from Greece and Italy and may have, according to reports, dumped a part of their illicit cargo overboard.
