Coast Guard Intercepts $2 Million Worth of Cocaine, Marijuana


ST. PETERSBURG, FL - U.S. Coast Guard crews unloaded two-million-dollars worth of drugs in Florida, this weekend.

These are crew members of the Coast Guard Cutter Confidence reuniting with loved ones at Port Canaveral after being on the ship for almost 60 days.

In August, they helped intercept what the Coast Guard calls a "go-fast vessel," a 35-foot speed boat with three 200-plus horsepower engines.
From that bust south of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, they unloaded 2,245 pounds of marijuana.

This came the same day that the crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Resolute came into port at the U.S. Coast Guard Sector in St. Petersburg, offloading nearly 3,000 pounds of cocaine and marijuana.
