10,000 pounds of pot and cocaine seized

Jacksonville Beach, FL (WTVR)–About 7,500 pounds of seized cocaine arrived in Florida this morning, on a Navy ship. That’s almost four tons!

WTKR, the sister station of CBS 6, had a reporter on the scene when the ship pulled to port.

The drugs were confiscated by the United States Navy, Coast Guard and Customs and Border Patrol during a six-month operation off the coasts of Central and South America.

They also seized about 320 pounds of marijuana.

The drugs have a estimated wholesale value of $93 million dollars, but street value would be about three times that–about $300 million.

Here is uncut video from the drug bust:
