Colombia’s authorities seized 2.2 tons of marijuana Friday in southern state of Cauca.

Police reported the marijuana was found hidden within a truck that police said appeared to belong to rebel group FARC, the country’s largest guerrilla organization with strong ties in the region and with the area’s marijuana cultivation.

The operation, which used informants to locate the vehicle, took place in the municipality of Corinto as part of ongoing efforts to curb drug trafficking in the country.

Upon locating the vehicle, the authorities found various packets containing organic plant matter, which later was confirmed to be marijuana.
