The crew of the Coast Guard cutter Bear interdicted a go-fast vessel carrying 4,355 pounds of cocaine while patrolling the Caribbean Sea.

When a helicopter hovered over the boat on Sept. 9 for closer investigation, the subjects began throwing bales overboard.

The contraband and detainees were transferred to federal law enforcement officials at Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
