A Coast Guard crew in the waters between Honduras and Jamaica were blown away when they found a boat packed with enough cocaine to make Scarface shiver.
The crew of Cutter Vigorous boarded a Honduran-registered vessel named Capt Lem about 170 miles Southwest of Jamaica in June and found 3,300 pounds of the Bolivian marching powder stuffed into 77 packages, according to a report released today.
The search must have been quick. The blow weighs about as much as a small car.
The Vigorous crew transferred the crewmembers and cocaine to FBI agents in Port Canaveral on Monday.
