MIAMI — More than 6,500 pounds of marijuana seized during a joint effort between the crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Mohawk and crewmembers of the Coast Guard Cutter Tahoma was offloaded in Key West, Fla., October 16.
A joint crew, made of the Tahoma's crew along with six crewmembers from the Mohawk, were operating aboard the Mohawk as the Tahoma undergoes a nine-month overhaul at the Coast Guard Yard in Baltimore as part of Coast Guard’s Mission Effectiveness Project. The crews are working together under the Coast Guard Atlantic Area's MEP multi-crewing program.
Seventh Coast Guard District command center watchstanders received notification that the Jamaican-flagged fishing vessel Captain Richard was disabled and adrift in the Caribbean Sea, without fuel to operate its engines, more than 200 miles from the nearest port. Watchstanders then tasked the Coast Guard crew to provide assistance to the Captain Richard.
Shortly after arriving on scene, the combined crew took the 60-foot Captain Richard in tow. The Coast Guard received permission from the Government of Jamaica to conduct a law enforcement boarding of the vessel. Using advanced Coast Guard training, the boarding team discovered several hundred packages wrapped in plastic wrap and tape. The contents later tested positive for marijuana.
Upon discovering the contraband, the crew of the Captain Richard were taken into custody and transferred to the Mohawk along with approximately 6,500 pounds of marijuana with an estimated wholesale value of $6.2.
Maine Man Gets Stolen Marijuana Plants Returned by Police

If you happen to grow Marijuana in the United States and it is stolen, what do you do? There isn’t anything you can do. You’ve been robbed and someone is getting high or making money off of all your hard work and your customers/patients will suffer. It puts you months behind in plant growth and you have to start all over again. I’ve known of this happening to growers and it is devastating to them and their consumers. It is the same as if you had broken into a pharmacy and stolen all the pain killers.
In the case of licensed medical marijuana caregiver Thomas Davis of Maine, you call the Police and report it! Surprisingly, after one of his greenhouses was robbed, he phoned the local police to report it. Seems when Davis reported his stolen crop (17 plants in all), the police already had in custody his thief and his crop. But there was a problem.
Police in Ellsworth, Maine had never had to RETURN Marijuana to someone before. But that is exactly what they did. Since Davis is a licensed medical marijuana grower and caregiver of other medical marijuana patients, he had the 17 stolen plants returned, which unfortunately, had gained mold from being out of their greenhouse too long. The theft did exactly what would have happened if he hadn’t gotten them back. He and his patients will have to find their medication elsewhere until Davis can get new plants going.
