Mexican authorities are reporting the seizure of more than $1 million worth of cocaine along with two individuals when the Maersk Line container ship Svendborg Maersk arrived at the port of Manzanillo in the Colima region of Mexico. Local officals said that it was unusual to find individauls hidden in the container working as guards on the shipment.

An inspection of the Svendborg Maersk carried out by the port in cooperation with the Mexican Navy, the Manzanillo customs and attorney general's office, discovered two men who were not crew members along with two packages that did not correspond to the ship’s manifest concealed in a container aboard the ship. Each package reportedly contained 45 packages in the form of a brick, which later tested positive for cocaine. The total weight of the shipment was reported at 102.6 kilograms.
