In this July 19, 2015 photo released by the U.S. Coast Guard, Coast Guard Cutter Stratton crew members secure cocaine bales from a self-propelled semi-submersible interdicted in international waters off the coast of Central America. The Coast Guard recovered more than 6 tons of cocaine from the 40-foot vessel. Cocaine seizures by the U.S. Coast Guard off Latin America have jumped to their highest levels in five years. Officials say Monday, Aug. 10, 2015, drug traffickers are increasingly turning to the sea to get their loads to U.S. markets. The $1.8 billion in seized cocaine comes after Washington restored the Coast Guard budget to its previous levels, following a 25 percent cut in operating costs in 2013.
