American and Australian officials seized a customized 85-ft Bristol ketch in Port Vila on Vanuatu last Monday, coming away with 1,650 lbs of cocaine worth $330 million. Agents had to chisel the stuff out of the bilge, where it was encased in concrete.
According to news reports, the DEA had been tracking Raj for some time before coordinating the raid. They believe the boat was en route to Queensland, Australia, where cocaine is in high demand. No arrests have been made.
