Dutch patrol ship finds 5,000 kg of cocaine floating in Caribbean

The crew of the Royal Dutch Navy patrol vessel HNLMS Holland had an easy drug bust last week.

They found a huge cargo of cocaine floating on the high seas and waiting for pickup. There were no arrests.
No pursuits, warning shots or boardings; all they had to do was pull 5,000 kg of cocaine out of the water. Patrol aircraft spotted a floating field of bales in international waters of the Caribbean, and the Holland diverted to the scene to investigate.
