USCG offloads seized drugs

MIAMI, United States (CMC) — The United States Coast Guard says that crew members from its Cutter Harriet Lane have offloaded about 12,100 pounds of cocaine and about 5,759 pounds of marijuana, worth an estimated US$216 million, seized in drug interdictions in the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean.

The US Coast Guard said the drugs, unloaded on Thursday at Port Everglades in Florida, were interdicted in 12 separate law enforcement cases by two coast guard vessels, three US Navy vessels, and two British Royal Navy vessels during a two-week period spanning August 27 – September 8.
