More than $17 million worth of cocaine will not make it to the streets of South Florida or anywhere else for that matter after the U.S. Coast Guard intercepted the 1,400 pounds of coke from a go-fast vessel in the southwest Caribbean Sea.
There was lots of “white powder” on Miami Beach Miami on Friday but it had nothing to do with snow or the weather.
Nearly 3-thousand pounds of cocaine, worth an estimated $35 million, has been interdicted at sea by the U.S. Coast Guard.
Four suspected smugglers could run, but could not hide as the combined forces of the U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Navy bore down on them in the western Caribbean.
