Federal officials have seized more than 56,000 pounds of cocaine in only six months into the new year.
The U.S. Navy, Coast Guard and federal law enforcement agencies seized the cocaine in a record-breaking operation. The coalition seized 53,000 pounds of cocaine in 2014.
U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy said big busts like these have a huge impact on the international war on drugs.
“The seizures of these kinds of record-breaking amounts of cocaine means there are tens of thousands of pounds that aren’t making their way to the street,” Duffy said. “There are literally billions of dollars that are not making their way into cartel coffers.”
