The Coast Guard Cutter Joseph Napier’s crew offloaded more than 2,024 pounds of cocaine worth more than $23 million in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Monday.

United States law enforcement seized the drugs on June 18 in Caribbean Sea international waters south of Puerto Rico.

The law enforcement officials also arrested four suspected smugglers – one Colombian, one Dominican Republic and two Venezuelan nationals.

The suspects face prosecution by the Department of Justice in the U.S. Federal District Court in Puerto Rico.
