U.S. Coast Guard crews off-loaded millions of pounds of illegal drugs Monday. The drugs were seized recently off the coasts of Mexico, Central and South America.
The contraband was recovered from drug-smuggling boats in 18 separate operations, and is worth nearly $400 million total. The drugs included more than 27 million pounds of cocaine and 11,000 pounds of marijuana.
It was off-loaded at Florida’s Port Everglades.
