USCG Seizes $260M Worth of Cocaine from Vessel off Pacific Coast

$260 million worth of cocaine was seized by the U.S. Coast Guard.

Crews say they discovered 17,000 lbs. of cocaine off the Pacific Coast in Central and South America.

More than 10,000 lbs. came from a single bust.

Guardsmen recovered it after a high-speed chase with a fishing boat.

The boat dumped the drugs in the water and managed to get away.

It’s the largest seizure from a single small vessel since 2016.
