Turtle Found by U.S. Coast Guard with $53 million Worth of Cocaine Attached to It

https://people.com/crime/turtle-found-by-u-s-coast-guard-with-53-million-worth-of-cocaine-attached-to-it/?fbclid=IwAR2tCS0nU98dLlWecqJxA_dUdSGrT7Dx0hPZBnw0dy-tNYgQPAfYf5brEgg

A giant sea turtle had to be rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard after it became entangled in a rope attached to packages filled with millions of dollars of cocaine on Tuesday.

The Coast Guard cutter Thetis, which is stationed in Key West, Florida, was on a 68-day deployment when it came across the turtle trying to escape from 26 bales of cocaine.

The crew noticed a large debris field on Tuesday while on a patrol, and discovered the turtle stuck among the bales which the Coast Guard estimates contain over $53 million of cocaine.


Not sure how effective that wall will be across the Gulf of Mexico.

6. Real Turtle This Time

I thought maybe this was a backhanded reference to the time the ship owned by Mcconnell's in-laws was caught with 40 kilos of cocaine.

Maybe McConnell is taking a more direct hand in things?

11. The turtle was shot immediately by the USCG

...and the cocaine sold by the CIA to the Russians.

Move along, folks.
