Coast Guard Cutter Boutwell offloads 28,000 pounds of seized cocaine on return to port after a 90-day counter drug patrol. The crew turned the cocaine, worth more than $423 million wholesale, over to agents from the Drug Enforcement Agency. The drugs were seized and 55 suspects were apprehended during 18 separate interdictions by U.S. Coast Guard and Navy forces off the coast of Central and South America as part of Operation Martillo. Six of the interdictions were made by the crew of Boutwell. U.S. Coast Guard video.
