FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - The United States Coast Guard offloaded approximately 34,780 pounds of cocaine in Port Everglades.

The offloading took place on Tuesday morning, representing 21 separate drug interdiction operations that happened at sea by different Coast Guard crews.

“I am extremely proud of all the women and men that contributed to the mission success,” said Commanding Officer Michael Sharp. “It is a direct reflection of how the U.S. Coast Guard delivers mission excellence anytime, anywhere.”

The cocaine busts happened off the coasts of Mexico, Central and South America during the span of about three months.

“What you see behind us is the effort of our whole United States Government. It’s Department of Defense, Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security where CBP and the Coast Guard are nested,” said one Coast Guard official.

In the last three years collectively, the Coast Guard has removed 1.3 million pounds of cocaine from the waters of the U.S. shore.
