US Coast Guard To Offload $19 Million In Cocaine Monday In Miami Beach

| by

After a drug bust late last month, the U.S. Coast Guard plans to offload more than 1,200 pounds of cocaine in Miami Beach on Monday. The coke is estimated to be worth about $19 million.

On May 29, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection aircraft became aware of a go-fast boat cruising off the coast of Costa Rica. The crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Bertholf was alerted about the boat and responded by dispatching a helicopter and another vessel. The go-fast boat was intercepted and the cocaine was discovered onboard, The Sun-Sentinel reported.

The six smugglers on the boat were detained and later transferred to the Drug Enforcement Agency in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The drugs will be transferred to DEA agents in Miami Beach.

The go-fast boat was sunk at sea.
