Coast Guard unloads more than 2000 pounds of marijuana in Key West
Posted on: 07/14/18

A Key West-based U.S. Coast Guard cutter took in a large haul of marijuana during a maritime bust in March, and the crew unloaded the contraband last Friday when it returned to its home port in the Southernmost City.

The Thetis, a 100-foot Famous class cutter, with a crew of 100, returned June 8 from an 88-day mission in the Caribbean and Atlantic Ocean.

During the tour, crew members stopped a boat in the Caribbean smuggling 2,116 pounds of marijuana. An MH-65 Dolphin helicopter from Coast Guard Air Station Borinquen, Puerto Rico, and the Jamaican Defense Force aided the Thetis crew in the seizure, according to a Coast Guard news release.
