At Sea - A suspected cocaine smuggling vessel drifts in international waters of the Eastern Pacific Ocean after being intercepted by the crew of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Thetis November 16, 2019. An estimated 3,700 lbs. of cocaine found on board the low profile vessel were seized and four suspected smugglers were detained.
