U.S. Seizes 30,000 Pounds of Cocaine
    #3188052 - 09/27/04 09:19 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20040927/ap_on_go_ca_st_pe/cocaine_seizure

WASHINGTON - The Coast Guard and Navy seized 30,000 pounds of cocaine from a boat off South America's Pacific coast this month in what authorities called the largest-ever seizure of the drug at sea.


On Sept. 17, the USS Curts, a Navy frigate based in San Diego, intercepted the Lina Maria, a fishing boat, about 300 miles west of the Galapagos Islands (news - web sites). A Coast Guard team boarded the boat and found 30,000 pounds of cocaine hidden in a sealed ballast tank.


Ten people were detained. They were charged Monday by federal authorities in Tampa, Fla. The crew of the boat, who were Colombian, claimed the boat had a Cambodian flag, but the government of Cambodia denied that, so the boat was treated as having no nationality, a Coast Guard spokeswoman said.


A second seizure was made Friday in the same area. The frigate USS Crommelin, based in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, stopped the fishing boat San Jose, and a Coast Guard team found 26,000 pounds of cocaine hidden under fish and ice in the vessel's cargo hold. The boat had a Belizean flag and a Colombian crew, officials said.


The two boats were believed to have come from Colombia. Officials believe they were headed for the U.S. West Coast, said Navy Lt. Ligia Cohen, a spokeswoman for U.S. Southern Command.


In the last year, the Coast Guard has seized a record 240,518 pounds of cocaine, worth about $7.7 billion, officials said. Much of that is in the Caribbean, but authorities say there is also a thriving drug trade on the Pacific coast of the Americas.


The Navy provides warships to assist in counternarcotics operations, but military personnel are not allowed to arrest suspected drug smugglers because they are not law enforcement officers. Coast Guard teams instead make the actual arrests.

I saw a show on how the military is cracking down on these boat transporters.

Apparently the coast guard is now dedicating a lot of money/time into the war on drugs.

They don't see it that way. Coke and Heroin and Mushrooms are all illegal and in the same schedule. They wont just turn their back.

The reason they arent busting huge mushroom shipments is because they are easy to grow in large quantities in secret (unlike growing a farm of cocoa or opium poopies/pods)

Actually cocaine is schedule II. Shrooms and heroin are schedule I.

I'll never understand how shrooms are worse than coke.

The peace movement is an extremely dangerous culture to the government. They are most concerned with the drugs that that culture uses.

that sucks, They can never stop the drug trade unless they legalize it and the goverments make money from it. America is the biggest market for "illegal" drugs, thats sure a hell of alot of coke though!

Well gee, largest bust yet? Can't wait till they make a 100,000 pound seizure! It doesn't matter how much they seize, there is enough that will get through, plants can be replanted, or maybe they'll divide that 100,000 into 10 10,000 pound boats, and maybe the guard will only get 3 next time. Oh well, at least the coast guard can arrest and seize ship 300 miles away from US shores.

Scheduling is based on how often it is used in medicine.

Cocaine is still used. Heroin and mushrooms arent.

It is used in dentistry to numb the mouth. They probably don't use it too often.

Its used as a local anesthetic. I know a girl who works as a pharm- tek at a large hospital in my area, and she says they have it in their pharmacy- under lock and key. I'll have to ask the crack dealers down my street if this big bust is really gonna affect their biz.  :noway:
