An Esquimalt-based Canadian warship has made a document drug bust on the Arabian Sea.
HMCS Calgary intercepted two vessels off the coast of Oman on April 23 and 24. Onboard they found 1,286 kilograms of heroin and 360 kg of methamphetamine. The mixed worth of the seized medication was estimated to be greater than $23 million.
The Royal Canadian Navy mentioned it was the most important ever heroin bust within the historical past of the Mixed Maritime Forces, a multinational coalition naval job power with a concentrate on countering the drug commerce, smuggling, and piracy.
HMCS Calgary is a Halifax-class frigate based mostly out of Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt.
