The Attorney General's Office says a trained dog picked up the scent of drugs during an inspection of a shipping container sent from Colombia.

Officials in the port of Manzanillo dismantled parts of a 1990 pickup truck inside the container and found that its rear bumper and some of its body panels appeared to be made from pressed cocaine base coated in fiberglass.

The office said in a statement Thursday that the cocaine-mix parts weighed 164 pounds (74 kilograms). No charges have yet been brought in the case.
