NewsChannel 3 is about to get an exclusive look at the tons of cocaine local sailors seized in the Caribbean.

Last month, NewsChannel 3 showed you the pictures of the more than two tons of cocaine seized by the USS Nicholas.

The crew worked with the Coast Guard – and even the Colombian Navy – to intercept a boat carrying the illegal drugs.

It’s considered the largest drug bust for the Nicholas.

The ship, and all of those drugs, arrived in Mayport, Florida yesterday.

NewsChannel 3 investigator Mike Mather is also in Mayport gathering exclusive information and more pictures of the drugs.

Look for his report starting on NewsChannel 3 First at Four.
