The United States Coast Guard and Customs and Border Protection law enforcement personnel seized USD 1.42 million worth of cocaine aboard the Isleño ferry in Fajardo, Puerto Rico on July 22.
Some 125 pounds of cocaine was found aboard the vessel when a USCG boarding team conducted surveillance patrol at the Fajardo ferry terminal.
After passengers had disembarked from Isleño, the personnel started their search and found two suitcases in plain view, containing 50 wrapped packages of suspected contraband.
A field test conducted at the scene revealed the contents of the packages to be cocaine, the USCG said.
Coast Guard boarding team personnel were assisted by Puerto Rico Police Joint Forces of Rapid Action during the transport and transfer of the illegal drug shipment to Immigrations and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigation Special Agents, who are leading the investigation.
