“Our AMO crews patrol the Caribbean every day to detect and stop smuggling attempts,” said Johnny Morales, Director of CBP’s Caribbean Air and Marine Branch. “We remain committed to work with other law enforcement partners to detect and deter these intrusions.”

On Aug. 27, a US Coast Guard Air asset contacted CBP’s Mayaguez Marine Unit, reporting a vessel near Mona Island heading east towards Puerto Rico’s west coast. Two Mayaguez Marine Unit interceptor crews found the suspect “yola” type wooden vessel, which failed to stop when instructed by AMO agents, and proceeded to dump several gas containers overboard.

AMO Agents recovered a gas container from the water that contained 28 bricks of suspected cocaine.   The Agents arrested the three aliens operating the vessel, seizing US and foreign currency.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) assumed the prosecution and investigation.
