Federal agents have seized approximately 450 kilos, 1,185 pounds, of cocaine from a shipping container in a port in Philadelphia. The drugs were estimated to have a street value of $38 million.
It’s the largest drug bust in Philadelphia in the past 21 years. With a combined effort from local, state and federal agents, the drug will no longer make it to the streets.
Customs and Border Protection seized 3,200 pounds of cocaine just last week at a port in New York with a value of $77 million.
