"It is one of the larger hauls the Coast Guard has brought in, in recent memory," said Lt. J.G. Meaghan Gies at a press conference in Miami Beach. "The main goal of the Coast Guard is to stop this bulk contraband, this cocaine, from [contributing] to the crime and violence of South Florida." More than 7,000 pounds of cocaine were confiscated by the Coast Guard, a big payoff after a major international effort that was launched in 2012. The 127 bales of drugs that eventually ended up sitting on a Coast Guard dock in Miami beach could have possibly have fetched more than $300 million on our US streets and were the result of two seperate siezures in the Carribean Sea.
