$6 Million Cocaine Bust, One Of Largest Ever In State

WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (AP) _ Police have seized more than 100 kilograms of cocaine with an estimated street value of more than $6 million in what authorities are calling one of the biggest drug busts in Connecticut history.

The drugs were seized on Wednesday when a New York man attempted to pick up a package from a Windsor Locks commercial delivery service.

State police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance said the package had been moved by a forklift to the delivery service’s loading dock and Olivo was loading it into his car when he was arrested on various drug charges.

Vance says the cocaine came from overseas.

Olivo was held on $2 million bond pending an appearance Thursday in Enfield Superior Court. It was not immediately clear if he had a lawyer.
