FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – In an awesome display of service Thursday morning in Fort Lauderdale, the crew of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter James offloaded six tons of cocaine seized in international waters.
The drugs offloaded at Port Everglades were confiscated during six different drug smuggling interdictions in the eastern Pacific Ocean.
The article goes on to state the following:
Worth an estimated $179 million, the cocaine was seized during a 20-day period using three separate ships.
“My folks, from the helicopter crews to the folks driving these small boats, they are at the pointed end of that spear and they’re going into harm’s way to stop these folks,” Capt. Mark Fedor said. “And they do a great job.”
