The coast guard made a huge cocaine bust right off the coast of Cape cod seizing a drug shipment worth $20 million dollars.

The DEA helped crews pull 1,200 pounds of cocaine off of the 49-foot yacht after it was caught on Monday.

The coast guard says, they became suspicious about the boat called the “Elegance” when they noticed it riding very low in the water. They pulled two suspected smugglers off the boat before bringing it back to shore.

The “Elegance” is registered in Canada but there's no word on where the boat was coming from or going.
