French navy seize 7000kg of hashish street value at $3.5 million

French navy seize 7000kg of hashish street value at $3.5 million | Coastweek

French frigate FS Floreal has struck twice in 24 hours to seize over 7000kg of hashish, valued at U.S. $3.5 million dollars from suspicious dhows. This is most significant seizure of illicit drugs in the Indian Ocean since the Royal Saudi Naval Force took over command of CMF’s Combined Task Force (CTF)150 in August. On the 23rd of September, the first fishing dhow was spotted behaving in a suspicious manner. FS Floreal conducted a boarding and discovered 3900kg of hashish, which was confiscated and later destroyed. Barely a few hours later, FS Floreal’s helicopter detected another fishing dhow behaving suspiciously. Once again, the crew conducted a flag verification boarding and let loose Max, the ship’s sniffer dog. Max was quick to sniff out another 3500kg of hashish, which was promptly seized and later destroyed. PHOTOS - MARINE NATIONALE
