$1 Billion Dollars Worth of Cocaine Seized in Philadelphia Raid

Reports surfaced noting that 992 pounds of cocaine were recently seized in a drug bust in a Philadelphia shipyard on a ship. The amount of drugs seized came out to a total of $1 billion.

The bust is the biggest one to take place in the city, and this comes after a bust of $18 million in cocaine took place in March 2019. A few members who were on the ship were charged according to statements from the U.S. Attorney’s office. According to officials on the scene, the drugs were sealed in seven different shipping containers on the boat, and were discovered to be held in bags once they opened the containers.
