Colombia: U.S. soldiers busted with coke

Bogota, Colombia, Apr. 1 (UPI) -- Five U.S. soldiers were arrested in Colombia on charges of smuggling more than 30 pounds of cocaine out of the country, El Tiempo reports.

The suspected soldier traffickers were detained Tuesday. U.S. military and Colombian authorities are investigating how the suspects may have shipped the drugs -- with an estimated worth of $25,000 -- out of the country.

According to officials the soldiers tried bringing the drugs into the United States aboard a U.S. military aircraft.

The soldiers are reportedly being detained in the United States, according to the U.S. Southern Command.

The United States has provided $3.3 billion in aid and tactical services to Colombia during the last four years to combat drug trafficking. Colombia is the world's largest producer of cocaine and a major supplier of heroin.
