Florida just got a shipment of nearly 35,000 pounds of cocaine worth almost half a billion dollars. It comes from the US Coast Guard, which brought back drugs from 21 different intercepted illegal shipments. The suspected smugglers were busted off the coasts of Mexico and Central and South America.
Much of the work was done when coast guard members weren’t even getting paid. “I’m real proud of the men and women behind us. They have stepped forward… These men and women were away from their families, a lot of things on their mind, but they kept their head in the game.
They stood the watch and what you see behind you is the results of that.” Adm. Karl Schultz said. The Coast Guard says it has removed 1.3 million pounds of cocaine from illegal drug supply chains over the past three years.
