Nine Tonnes Of Crystal Meth Seized In Mexico

This latest seizure comes a week after 45 tonnes was found in the same area.

The Mexican army has seized 9.07 tonnes of the illegal drug crystal meth in the western state of Sinaloa.

The synthetic drug, found in both liquid and solid form, was hidden in sacks and barrels in the countryside near the city of Culiacan, the military said on Wednesday.

From the methamphetamine group of illegal drugs, the stimulant is addictive and can cause both physical and psychological damage.

The drugs were burnt, the military said.

The seizure follows the discovery of some 45 tonnes of crystal meth buried underground in Sinaloa last week.
