ICE makes biggest cocaine bust in 25 years: $77M seized at New Jersey port

Federal law enforcement officers assigned to the Port of New York and New Jersey in Newark, N.J., made the largest discovery of cocaine in nearly 25 years last month when they found $77 million worth of cocaine inside a shipment container that had just arrived from overseas.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Monday that approximately 3,200 pounds of cocaine was found in the large container on Feb. 28.

“This is a significant seizure, in fact it is the largest cocaine seizure at the Port of New York/Newark since May 1994,” Troy Miller, director for Customs and Border Protection's New York Field Operations, said in a statement.

Well, someone is dead, or will be. Bad business decision.

There are no "Socialists", no "Progressives", only Communists, with every negative image that totalitarianism might muster, demanding fealty and conformity to their views, with a legacy of 150,000,000 dead and counting.

Whatever.   Since they're going to destroy the half or so that doesn't "disappear", it's not really worth $77M.

Likely street pricing (1 kilo=1000 grams (uncut)=$100,000.00, +/- at $100/gram), not wholesale, anyway.
77 million=1694 pounds of powder....
I have little doubt a bunch will get 'misplaced'....
