Coast Guard Nets Big Catch

Coast Guard Nets Big Catch

(TacticalNews.com) – The US Coast Guard helps protect our sea borders, among other things. The bulk of what they do is stop drug trafficking, something the president has had a hard focus on since taking over the Oval Office. They also rescue people stranded at sea, and are a maritime law enforcement force. Recently, hey got a nice catch, but it wasn’t a fish.

The US Coast Guard recently seized about $37 million worth of cocaine, in a known drug transit zone. The shipment of more than 2,000 pounds of cocaine was seized in the eastern Pacific Ocean and offloaded in San Diego. US agencies have enhanced their efforts to stop trafficking in the Western Hemisphere, despite COVID-19. In part, this is because President Trump stated early on he was concerned smugglers would take advantage of the pandemic, and called for an increase in resources and efforts to combat them.
