Working with Italian customs authorities, the financial police inspected the bridge and crew cabins before asking to unload a number of containers destined for the Italian ports of Tarragona and Vado Ligure. With the aid of a digital scanner and canine unit, police discovered the narcotics subdivided in 30 cellophane-wrapped cakes of about one kilogram each.
