The US Coast Guard medium endurance cutter Valiant returned to Naval Station Mayport in Florida earlier this week after completing a seven-week counter-drug patrol in the Eastern Pacific Ocean.
While on patrol, Valiant‘s crew interdicted and seized more than 725 kilograms of cocaine with an estimated street value of over US$27 million.
Three suspected narcotics traffickers were detained with the assistance of a maritime patrol aircraft, off the coast of Panama, in support of Joint Interagency Task Force South.
