(FOX NEWS) – The Coast Guard on Thursday released video of service members jumping onto a moving drug smuggling vessel carrying 17,000 pounds of cocaine with an estimated street value of $232 million, according to a branch spokesman.
The video from June 18 showed “Coasties” from the Cutter Munro leaping onto the self-propelled semi-submersible vessel, suspected of carrying drugs.
The vessel moved alongside the cutter in the eastern Pacific. A crew member can then be seen busting open the hatch to find an unidentified man inside.
Five suspected drug smugglers were found, Chief Petty Officer John Masson with the U.S. Coast Guard told Fox News on Thursday.
