    Yesterday morning, Stu said he thought he saw a naval ship off in the distance. I wonder if it was this?

    200 packages of 25 kilos each is 5,000 kilos. At around $150,000 per kilo of pure cocaine, the street value is up to $750,000,000.00. And that's just one shipment they seized, imagine how much gets by.

    That's a lot of $$$. I wonder how Aruba will dispose of it.

    Could they sell it?
    The proceeds would help their financial woes.

    I am kidding.
