Federal authorities Tuesday seized more than 16 tons of cocaine from a cargo ship docked at the Port of Philadelphia — a massive haul they estimated was worth up to $1 billion and described as the largest busts ever in southeastern Pennsylvania.

The contraband was discovered in seven shipping containers aboard a vessel arriving from prior stops in Chile, Panama, and the Bahamas. Members of the ship’s crew have been arrested and charged, a spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

The article goes on to state the following:

“This is one of the largest seizures in United States history,” U.S. Attorney William M. McSwain said in a tweet. “This amount of cocaine could kill millions — MILLIONS — of people.”

  1. Dennis Michael Lynch -Ask why the other 16!!!! Ships !!! that met in some ocean didn’t get caught. How could this be. “Big brother “ watches over us and we cannot watch 17 freighters meet ,and disputes drugs, and this was the only one to get busted. Rumor in the Mexican community in Delaware
