Nearly $400 million worth of drugs are scheduled to come ashore in South Florida on Tuesday afternoon. The incredible load accounts for at least 17 attempted smuggles that were confiscated by the U.S. Coast Guard. The seized drugs consist of more than 12 tons of cocaine, and at least 2,000 pounds of marijuana.
Along with the U.S. Coast Guard, the Canadian Navy helped intercept the drugs from vessels off of the coasts of South America, Central America, and Mexico.
The cutter Legare is expected to haul the cargo to Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale at about 1 p.m.
