Royal Navy ship assists in Caribbean drugs bust by UK Ministry of Defence [MoD]

RFA Wave Knight and the US Coast Guard worked together to seize cocaine in the Caribbean with an estimated wholesale value of £8.5 million in what was Wave Knight’s second successful counter-narcotics operation in 3 weeks.
While on patrol in the Caribbean Sea on 11 February, the crew of Wave Knight detected a suspicious speedboat operating in the area.
A US Coast Guard helicopter was quickly despatched from Wave Knight and, after arriving at the scene, the coast guard team saw 2 men throwing packages into the sea. Warning shots were fired, forcing the speedboat to a standstill.
