For cocaine enthusiasts in the New York City area, run, don’t walk, to your friendly neighborhood supplier because prices are about to get a lot higher. A massive drug bust went down and it was the biggest in 25 years. A lot of people’s weekend plans just got ruined.
On February 28th, feds seized 3,200 pounds of cocaine (Or roughly two days worth of yayo for Wall Street) said to have a street value of $77 million. U.S. Customs and Border Protection seized the 60 packages of booger sugar were seized at Port New York/Newark, the largest shipment of cocaine recovered at New York and New Jersey in 25 years, and the second-largest coke seizure ever in the two states.

The shipment was onboard a ship that originated in South America and arrived at Port Newark at the end of last month. The drugs were found in a shipping container.
The investigation and historic seizure involved the New York Police Department, New York State Police, the U. S. Coast Guard, Homeland Security Investigations and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) as well as assistance from the U.K.’s National Crime Agency.
“This is a significant seizure, in fact it is the largest cocaine seizure at the Port of New York/Newark since May 1994” said Troy Miller, the director of New York Field Operations for Customs and Border Protection. “This interception prevents a massive quantity of drugs from getting to the streets and in the hands of our children.” The largest drug bust at Port Newark happened in May of 1994 when authorities snatched 6,400 pounds of cocaine. Holy yayo Tony Montana.
