VIDEO: Dramatic footage of €25m drugs raid in South America

This dramatic footage shows Chilean authorities seizing almost $30m in cocaine and marijuana in a raid.

The country’s second largest drug haul in a year, the raid was carried out by Chile’s investigative police service on Sunday with 2.4 tonnes of the drugs being confiscated at the scene.

Officers can be seen shooting and detonating a ‘sound bomb’ during the raid.

According to a regional prosecutor, the drugs were intended to be sold domestically during Chile’s independence celebrations which are taking place this month.

One of the suspects can be seen getting into a truck moments before he’s arrested.
