A Coast Guard crew has seized what authorities say could be up to 13 tons of cocaine--perhaps the largest maritime cocaine seizure in history, a law enforcement source said Sunday. The cocaine was found on a fishing boat in the eastern Pacific Ocean, said the source, who requested anonymity. The boat was towed to San Diego on Sunday. The ship, the Svesdu Maru, had 10 crew members aboard, all from Russia and Ukraine, the source said. The vessel is registered in Belize.
