HMCS Athabaskan seizes 820 kg of cocaine in Carribbean bust
DND estimates drugs worth $24.5 million, wholesale
A team from HMCS Athabaskan, along with a U.S. and Panamanian crew, helped intercept a so-called “go fast” boat carrying 820 kilograms of cocaine on Oct. 1.
A news release from the Department of National Defence estimates the seizure is worth $24.5-million, wholesale.
HMCS Athabaskan arrived in the Caribbean last month to take part in the joint operation.
