SAN DIEGO (AP) — A big haul of cocaine and marijuana seized from vessels in the Eastern Pacific has been brought to San Diego aboard a U.S. Coast Guard cutter.
The Coast Guard says the 11,300 pounds of cocaine and more than 4,000 pounds of marijuana offloaded Thursday is valued at about $223 million.
The interdictions were conducted by the U.S. cutters Kimball, Legare and Spencer, and the Canadian vessel HMCS Yellowknife.
