By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Monday, Honduran authorities found over 1.6 million coca leaf bushes in the most important seizure of its kind ever, Reuters report.

The Central American nation is struggling to combat drug production.

“This is a historic seizure. We have dealt a heavy blow to these criminal drug trafficking organizations,” said Armed Forces spokesman Lieutenant Jose Coello.

The bushes used to make cocaine were found after a 3-day operation and were located in 4 plantations in mountainous areas in the coastal department of Colon.

“The entire government defense and security structure is working to prevent us from truly becoming a cocaine-producing country,” Deputy Defense Minister Colonel Elias Melgar stated.

For over 20 years, Honduras has reportedly been a transfer zone for cocaine as it passes through Central America from South America to Mexico and the United States.
