Two Colombian soldiers have been arrested after they were caught transporting half a ton of cocaine, authorities said Thursday.

The lieutenant and his subordinate were caught with 410 kilograms of the illicit drug at the check point between Sonso to Buga, both located in the southwestern Valle del Cauca department.

According to the armed forces, the two members of the military were off duty at the time of their arrest.

Defense Minister Juan Carlos Pinzon and Armed Forces Commander General Alejandro Navas announced an investigation to establish whether a “drug trafficking cartel” is active within the armed forces.
