$11M Worth Of Marijuana Seized At Sea
    #763974 - 12/31/14 06:16 PM (1 year, 11 months ago)



FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – Millions of dollars worth of  marijuana were confiscated on Wednesday.
Officials said the street value of the 103 bales of marijuana is a whopping 11 million dollars.
“This is the largest marijuana bust done by a fast response cutter since they’ve been commissioned,” said U.S. Coast Guard Lt. J.G. Breanna Hite.
The Coast Guard said they seized 4,100 pounds of marijuana just South of Jamaica and detained several people after a  bust at sea on Christmas Eve.
“While on routine patrol south of Jamaica, we received a report from an aircraft of a vessel with suspicious contraband on deck,” said Hite.
A Coast Guard fast-response cutter was sent out to intercept the go-fast vessel.
“The contraband was easy to find.  The vessel was completely full of contraband. It was all out in the open and easily accessible,”said Hite. “We had four people on deck.  They were compliant and posed no issues.”
Chopper4 captured the Coast Guard vessel bringing in five people to their Miami Beach station. Four of the people were taken off the boat in handcuffs.
The detainees were turned over to the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, a Coast Guard agent said.
The Coast Guard agent also said there is a mixture of nationalities and believes there are some Jamaicans and at least one was Cuban.
