US Coast Guard intercepts drugs worth $3 million

Two of the U-S Coast Guard's newest fast response cutters have made history.

The two cutters teamed up this week in their first drug interdictions and seized an estimated 21-hundred pounds of marijuana and 35 kilograms of cocaine worth a combined wholesale value of more than three million dollars.

The drugs were offloaded in Miami Friday morning.

On May second, the crew of the Paul Clark recovered about 220 pounds of marijuana from suspects who abandoned their vessel off the coast of Haiti once they were spotted.

While on May third, the crew of the Charles Sexton stopped a go-fast vessel in the Caribbean sea. They took five people into custody and seized nearly 19-hundred pounds of marijuana and 35 kilograms of cocaine.
