The Coast Guard stopped the vessel in international waters of the Pacific. When they were surrounded, the two subjects who were in the boat surrendered. The cargo was then moved to the coast of California.
Mexico City, March 20 (Infobae / SinEmbargo). – The boat sailed to the height of Central America, bound for the United States. It was part of an international drug trafficking network that in recent months was managing to introduce several tons of cocaine into the US market.
The Coast Guard detected his presence on March 3. Immediately, an operation started with a boat and a helicopter.
When they were surrounded, the two criminals who were in the narco boat surrendered. The cargo was then moved to the coast of California.
The operation was part of 17 interceptions of vessels that were carried out between February and March. The balance was 16 tons of cocaine seized.
“Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the Coast Guard officers, we are seizing record amounts of cocaine for the third year in a row,” said Todd Sokalzuk, commander of the 11th Coast Guard District.
