• Coast Guard, Navy, Costa Rican Coast Guard team interdict $4 million marijuana shipment

”After visual and radio signaling were ignored, the precision marksman fired warning shots. The go-fast stopped, and the persons aboard put their hands up.

"A Costa Rican Coast Guard vessel came alongside and took custody of the suspected smugglers and their vessel.

"The Elrod’s helicopter crew then located a debris field of jettisoned packets of various sizes. A Coast Guard boarding team aboard the Elrod’s small boat was then launched and recovered 91 bales of marijuana.”
