The U.S. military halted a smuggling vessel in the Gulf of Oman this week, uncovering $33 million worth of methamphetamine and hashish.
The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter USCGC Emlen Tunnell halted the supposed fishing vessel in international waters near the coast of Bahrain. U.S. forces boarded the ship and seized 4,000 kilograms of hashish and 512 kilograms of methamphetamine.
The Emlen Tunnell operates as part of the Combined Maritime Forces (CMF) that patrol the Gulf, which includes vessels from the U.K. Royal Navy and other allies.
