Crews from the Coast Guard will unload 12 tons of cocaine and 1 ton of marijuana today at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale.
The drugs, worth an estimated $390 million, were seized during drug smuggling interdictions off the coasts of Mexico, Central and South America.
Multiple U.S. coast Guard cutters and Canadian Naval vessels, along with numerous other law enforcement agencies worked together to combat transnational organized crime.
“Today’s offload sends them a message that our network of partners and allies remains resolute in our commitment to stem the flow of illicit trafficking that breeds instability," said Cmdr. Jonathan Carter, commanding officer of Coast Guard Cutter Legare.
The massive stash of drugs are scheduled to be offloaded at 1 p.m. today.
