Many know about Pablo Escobar and his infamous drug trade in the 1970s and 80s. But there have been plenty of other huge drug busts throughout the world, including, recently, in Escobar’s home country of Colombia.
On May 16, 2016, Colombian police seized 17,500 pounds of cocaine from the Clan Usuga gang. The drugs, worth hundreds of millions of dollars, were found on a banana farm, where the police discovered hundreds of cocaine bricks. The drug bust was the largest seizure in Colombia’s history.
