Massive Pot Bust to be Off-Loaded in St. Pete

ST.PETERSBURG, Fla (970 WFLA)- Two and a half million dollars of marijuana will be offloaded in St. Pete this morning from a Coast Guard cutter.  

The pot was discovered last week by a joint task force patrolling the Caribbean.  A Jamaican fishing vessel was spotted dumping packages overboard so the task force pulled alongside and recovered 55 packages of the illegal drugs and arrested the suspects.
