Video: Coast Guard & Navy Seized 14 Tons Of Cocaine In Eastern Pacific! (6.4 Tons Found In Home Made Submarine)
The Coast Guard Cutter Bertholf spent the past few months in the eastern Pacific and completed 13 drug busts.
The U.S. Coast Guard’ cutter ship handed the Drug Enforcement Agency 14 tons of seized cocaine in San Diego’s Broadway Pier, majority of the narcotics coming from the bust of a submarine like vessel.
The Coast Guard says the approximate 28,000 pounds of cocaine came from seizures off the coasts of Central and South America in the eastern Pacific Ocean. Dozens of smugglers were arrested.
The drugs, with an estimated street value of at least $400 million, were confiscated between late January and early March of 2016. Cutters Bertholf and Valiant were involved in the operations, along with the Naval ship USS Lassen.
