Fed Agents from Texas Bust 639 Lbs of Cocaine

HOUSTON, Texas -- More than 679 pounds of cocaine, worth over $9 million, were seized with the assistance of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Air and Marine agents operating off the southern coast of Texas. 

Agents aboard a P-3 Orion aircraft alerted Nicaraguan authorities of a suspicious "go-fast vessel in the Caribbean Sea south of Corn Island," CPB reported in a press release. Corn Island lies about 70 kilometers east of Nicaragua. 

Officials in Nicaragua responded to CBP's alert, and discovered 11 bales of drugs on the vessel, as well as eight additional bales that were thrown overboard. According to CBP, three individuals were arrested during the bust. They were recovering firearms aboard the vessel at the time of the large seizure.

The eye in the sky wins again. 639 lbs of blow is a pretty big deal. These damn political lobbyists need to learn how to do their fundraising a little better.
