Sixteen tons and what do you get? Another day older in prison, I bet, says Greensboro Criminal Defense attorney.
U.S. law enforcement seized 16 tons of cocaine, believed to be one of, if not the largest bust in U.S. History.
The estimated value of the cocaine, seized at a Philadelphia shipping terminal, is approximately $1 billion (with a “b”) dollars.
In March, a Philly bust netted about $38 billion worth of cocaine – 1,185 pounds.
The Liberia-flagged ship had been to Columbia, Peru, Panama and the Bahamas.
