USCGC Valiant concludes patrol with $147m drugs seized

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today US Coast Guard cutter concludes patrol with $147m drugs seized US Coast Guard cutter concludes patrol with $147m drugs seized The crew of U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Valiant returned to Naval Station Mayport on June 6 after seizing an estimated $147 million worth of cocaine.They also assisted in the removal of another $170 million of contraband interdicted by other Coast Guard cutters and apprehending 10 suspected drug smugglers.The cutter Valiant crew seized five drug-laden vessels with nearly five tons of cocaine and apprehended 10 suspected traffickers. The cutter Valiant crew also assisted in the transfer ashore of another six tons of cocaine interdicted by other cutters on patrol in the heavily trafficked drug transit zone.Cmdr. Timothy Cronin, commanding officer of the cutter Valiant, said the patrol was a success and will help bring stability to the Western Hemisphere. “We are doing a lot more than keeping drugs from reaching our streets and poisoning our youth. The Coast Guard’s maritime interdictions will also help reduce the horrific violence and instability caused by transnational criminal organizations in many Central American countries. By helping our neighbors to the south, we create a safer and more secure America.”Valiant crew members also dedicated hours of their liberty time ashore volunteering at the Salvation Army orphanage in Tapachula, Mexico. They painted rooms, cleaned common areas and played with the children leaving a positive impression with the local community near the Mexico-Guatemala border.“I enjoyed giving back to the local community and spending time making the orphanage a cleaner, safer place for the children to live,” said Lt. j.g. Lili Simon. “Our time there made me even more grateful for the things that I have.”The cutter Valiant crew, along with an aviation detachment from the Coast Guard’s Helicopter Interdiction Tactical Squadron and a tactical law enforcement team, deployed to the Eastern Pacific Ocean off the coast of Central and South America as part of a partnership that falls under Joint Interagency Task Force South, a component of U.S. Southern Command.This year marks the 50th year of service for the Coast Guard Cutter Valiant. The 210-foot Medium Endurance Cutter with a 75-member crew was launched in January 1967 and commissioned later that November. Valiant and 26 other Medium Endurance Cutters are slated for replacement by the Offshore Patrol Cutter.

Mayor’s Update: May 18, 2018

first_imgMayor Jay Gillian Dear Friends,Our rainy weather is expected to continue into the weekend, and the National Weather Service has issued a Coastal Flood Advisory in effect from 9 a.m. tonight until two in the morning. Our next high tide comes at 11:39 p.m., and forecasters predict minor tidal flooding. Heavy rain at the time of high tide could make conditions worse. I want to encourage everybody to err on the side of caution and move vehicles from streets that typically experience flooding well in advance of this late-night high tide. See our latest weather statement for more information.The rain this week came at a time when contractors across the island are pushing to complete concrete work, a precursor to many of the scheduled paving jobs. I want to thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we work to close out projects in advance of the season.One project that will continue into the summer will be the north end drainage project. Crews will complete work on the 500 block of West Avenue and on Fifth Street and Sixth Street while the adjacent Ocean City Primary School is out of session. Trenches on other streets in the project area will be restored for the summer, but final paving will not occur until after the season.The final paving of 34th Street from Bay Avenue to West Avenue was interrupted by the rain. Completion of the westbound lanes is now tentatively scheduled for Monday or Tuesday. Access to 34th Street Bridge from Bay Avenue will remain open at all times.The West 17th Street Bridge will be closed to all vehicle traffic from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday (May 22) as crews set the final section of the new bridge in place. Pedestrian access will remain open, but all residents should move vehicles to the other side of the bridge in advance of the bridge closing, if they will be needed during the day. Parking will be limited between Bay Avenue and the bridge on W. 17th Street.Today is the final day of National Police Week. I hope you’ll all take a moment to recognize the sacrifices and service of all our officers. We’re fortunate to have one of the finest departments in the region.We are hoping for good weather to finish out our road projects and get ready for the upcoming season.Warm regards,Jay A.
