Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

MIAMI (WFLX) - The United States Coast Guard unloaded 88 packages of cocaine, worth just a little more than $80 million, at the Port of Miami.

The cocaine came from a bust off the coast of Honduras when a Coast Guard cutter came across a fishing boat. On board were five Honduran nationals and lots of cocaine.

The suspects will make their first appearance in court Tuesday morning.
