US Coast Guard seize $110 million worth of cocaine

Crewmembers from the Coast Guard Cutter Northland offload cocaine confiscated from a vessel in the Caribbean Sea at Base Miami Beach, on March 16, 2012 in FloridaThe US Coast Guard said Tuesday it had seized an estimated $110 million worth of cocaine during two recent operations in the Caribbean. The combined bust of 3,300 kilos (3.63 tons) is “one of the largest in a long time,” Petty Officer 3rd Class Mark Barney told AFP. The first seizure occurred south of Jamaica on March 15, where the Coast Guard found about 97 bales containing some 2,400 kilos of cocaine floating near a fishing boat suspected of smuggling drugs. The Coast Guard pursued the vessel in the southwest Caribbean Sea, firing warning and disabling shots that prompted the crew to dump 900 kilos of cocaine worth an estimated wholesale value of $30 million.
