More than $1B worth of cocaine confiscated in Philly port

US authorities on Tuesday seized more than $1bn worth of cocaine from a ship at a Philadelphia port, calling it one of the largest drug busts in American history.

The US attorney’s office in Philadelphia announced the massive bust on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon, saying law enforcement agents seized about 16.5 tons (15 metric tons) of cocaine from a large ship at the Packer Marine Terminal. Members of the crew were arrested and face federal charges.

“This amount of cocaine could kill millions — MILLIONS — of people,” US attorney William McSwain said in a separate tweet.

The drug seizure is the latest in a series of large cocaine busts along the east coast. In a March bust in Philadelphia, drug dogs sniffed out 1,185lbs (538 kg) of cocaine worth about $38m – at that time the city’s largest seizure of the drug in more than two decades.
