$1 Billion Dollars Worth of Cocaine Seized in Philadelphia Raid

Mere months after 992 pounds of cocaine were seized from a ship in Philadelphia, the city has just hit a new record by multiplying that amount by a bunch. It is being reported that today, an insane amount of cocaine was found on a ship travelling from Chile to Europe and during a stop in Pennsylvania, the drugs were seized.

According to ABC News, this is the biggest cocaine bust to ever take place in the city. A total of 16.5 tons of cocaine, which is estimated at a street value of $1 billion, was found on the MSC Gayane at the Packer Marine Terminal. This type of seizure is unprecedented and especially considering $18 million worth of cocaine was confiscated in March in Philadelphia, this is a big find by the feds. Several members of the crew onboard have been charged according to the U.S. Attorney’s office
