Coast Guard helps make cocaine bust

The crew of the Wilmington-based Coast Guard Cutter Diligence assisted in a drug bust off the coast of Nicaragua a few days go. They rounded up 4,400 pounds of cocaine. The Diligence crew launched a boat crew from the cutter and persuaded the suspect boat with another team from the cutter Tampa, and a Colombian police team. They forced the boat to Nicaraguan naval forces. Two men were arrested, and more than two tons of cocaine were confiscated.
