50ft yacht busted with £60m of cocaine up for grabs

A 50ft yacht seized by the UK government will be put up for auction with no reserve price.
Gary Swift and Scott Kilgour began their journey from Suriname, a small country in South America. They were caught by customs officers, just off the Pembrokeshire coast with 751kg of high-purity cocaine stored throughout the vessel in 2019. It was one of the UK’s largest seizures.
Swift was jailed for 19 years for drug smuggling, while Kilgour pulled 13 years.
