Mexican Navy lands 1700 kg of cocaine

The Mexican Navy busted a 1,700 kilo shipment of cocaine aboard a go-fast boat far off the coast of Chiapas. The region is at the northern end of the busy Eastern Pacific transit corridor for cocaine shipments from Colombia. The service put the value of the seizure at about $24m; if delivered to the United States, the same cargo would be worth at least twice that amount.
