Federal officials on Monday exhibited bales of cocaine stacked like cordwood and announced a bust that netted 4,822 pounds of cocaine, which they said would have been worth $500 million on the street. Eleven people in Massachusetts and Florida were charged, and 10 arrested, in the third major cocaine bust in the Boston area since June. U.S. Atty. Wayne Budd said the cocaine, which federal undercover agents had seized on Aug. 7, was in "pure, uncut form."
