Distribution site of Alimentos Polar under the probe

Officers from the Institute for the Defense of Persons in the Access to Goods and Services (Indepabis) and National Guard were engaged in an inspection of the distribution site of Alimentos Polar, located in Valencia, Carabobo state (north-east Venezuela). The action came after multiple complaints about pre-cooked corn flour in short supply.
"So far, we have counted 343 tons of regulated pre-cooked corn flour stored in the premises. We are conducting an audit to check the release level, because the product cannot be found in grocery stores and supermarkets," reported Indepabis state coordinator Juan Escorcha.
The official added that the operation could take some hours as they intended to inspect the whole site.
In his opinion, the finding of the tons of the product is "an important evidence and in the next few hours we will announce any appropriate administrative and corrective measures," state-run news agency AVN cited.
Luis Jiménez Alfaro seems to have hidden under the rocks. The last time he was seen was on April 2006 walking calmly around Simón Bolívar International Airport of Maiquetía, located nearby Caracas. At that time, more than five tons of cocaine arrived in Mexico in an airplane which took off from Venezuela, and his name featured as a missing piece of the puzzle of one of the most massive drug shipments that has been witnessed in the Western Hemisphere.
