CITY OF CAUAYAN – A blue plastic container filled with 21-kilos of cocaine was found floating on waters off Divilacan town in Isabela province on Tuesday morning (Feb. 6), police said.

Divilacan Mayor Venturito Bulan said they turned over the contraband to the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency. The Police Crime Laboratory in Tuguegarao City tested the substance and concluded that it was cocaine.
