Coast Guard Brings More Than 14,000 Pounds of Cocaine Seized in Pacific to San Diego
More than 14,300 pounds (6,486 kilograms) of cocaine seized in the Eastern Pacific has been brought to San Diego aboard a Coast Guard cutter.
The cocaine offloaded Friday was seized in international waters off the coasts of Mexico and Central and South America.
The Coast Guard says the haul was accumulated during six interdictions by the crews of cutters Active, Steadfast and Waesche (WAY’-shee).
One of the seizures by crews in interceptor boats is seen in video recorded by a surveillance aircraft.
