$11 million cocaine bust unloaded in St. Pete

Posted: Updated:

The Coast Guard unloaded $11 million worth of cocaine into the port of St. Petersburg.

Fighting early morning fog, crew members unloaded 17 bales from a big bust made near Fort Myers. Three people were also found aboard the small boat.

It's not clear where the boat came from, or where it was heading. The Coast Guard says because of the time of year the smugglers might have thought they could get away with it over the holidays.
