Tony Montana Would Be Proud

Philadelphia received a special delivery this week, when cargo ship pulled into the city’s port with sixteen tons of cocaine.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, 16 and a half tons of cocaine were seized from a large ship at the Packer Marine Terminal on Tuesday, June 18.

The ship was en route from Chile an unknown location when authorities received a tip on Monday night about the cocaine shipment. Following a thorough search of the ship, authorities discovered the cocaine stowed away inside of eight shipping containers.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office estimates the street value of the cocaine at $1 billion. (H/T – MelP)

  1. TXNick – I saw so many people headed down there with shovels. Wonder why?

    Doc – Actually, Philly’s thing is heroin. Always the most pure in the nation, which is why we have so many overdoses. The coke would have been nice, though, since the junkies can switch back and forth.

  2. What’s the tariff on that stuff? 16 tons….I honestly can’t even imagine. Looks like some people better prepare for a dry spell or switch it up.
