My sons ship got a major drug bust. They were off the coast of Honduras and with the help of many agencies & many people they were able to stop a semi-submersible. They recovered 15,000 pounds of cocaine. I am very proud of my baby & his crew! There were several ships in the area working this case. Here is a quote from the CO of the CGC Oak...The Oak's commanding officer, Lt. Cmdr. Peter Niles, described the process as a "needle in a haystack search," but one that paid off handsomely.
It took some three days to remove the more than 200 bales of cocaine from the sunken vessel.
"This is once-in-a-career thing that happens," said Niles, a 27-year veteran of the Coast Guard.
