The French Navy vessel La Résolue seized 2.4 tonnes of cocaine off the coast of Martinique during two separate operations recently.

On the evening of May 2, La Résolue’s crew intercepted a boat about 950 kilometers from the Martinique coast and found 1,237 kilos of cocaine on board.

The French Navy crew arrested two suspects and escorted them, their boat, and 54 bundles of cocaine to the Martinique capital, Fort-de-France.

The specialized interregional jurisdiction of Fort-de-France is pursuing the investigation.

One week later, on May 9, La Résolue participated in another major drug bust at sea, this time 2,300 km southeast of Martinique.

 La Résolue crew seized 52 bales of cocaine weighing 1,236 kilos from a ship and destroyed the drugs.

Since the start of the year, French authorities have seized 10.8 tonnes of narcotics at sea.
