Cocaine Worth $19.4 Million Seized In The Caribbean Sea, Three Arrested


The United States Coast Guard Cutter Dauntless seized 670 kilograms of cocaine worth about $19.4 million during a 25-day Caribbean sea patrol.

The seizure occurred after Dauntless intercepted a go-fast boat with the narcotics on board.

The Coast Guard vessel crew also arrested three suspects.

In addition, Dauntless’s crew conducted joint operations with the USS Farragut and its embarked Law Enforcement Detachment.

The operations transferred 433 kilograms of illegal narcotics and six suspected traffickers.

Dauntless returned to its home port in Pensacola, Florida, on Tuesday.

The vessel is a 210-foot Reliance-class medium endurance Cutter.

Its primary missions are counter-narcotics operations, migrant interdiction, living marine resources protection, and search and rescue.

The missions support U.S. Coast Guard operations throughout the Western Hemisphere.

  1. This seems to be a cut and paste release from??????
    At least tell us the source. Let me guess… US Coast Guard?? That’s evident from the details given from the coast guard’s perspective but nothing said of the location or traffickers
    More details about where in the Caribbean this occurred and what nationality was the traffickers, maybe where they were coming from and going to, would be appreciated.
