The weight of the cocaine haul which was discovered yesterday is now 300 Kgs with the additional cocaine quantity found at the site afterwards, the Police Narcotic Bureau (PNB) said.
PNB Director SSP Kamal Silva said the haul had initially been weighed in at 274Kg when it was seized.
“Investigations are still underway. The cocaine has been valued at Rs.6.5 billion,” the SSP said.
The drug was found inside a sugar container in the Peliyagoda container yard by the Customs last evening. (Chaturanga Pradeep)
