The Colombian Army seized 1.3 tons of marijuana worth nearly a million dollars, allegedly owned by FARC leftist guerrillas, it said Saturday.
Most of the haul was seized in northern Cauca, where "soldiers seized 1,239 kilograms (2,732 pounds) of marijuana," a statement from the army's third brigade said.
A further 100 kilograms of marijuana was seized in the neighboring department of Valle del Cauca, "from a person who was transporting it to Cali" the capital of the department, the statement added. The stash was apparently intended for export, it said.
