Coast Guard seizes 700 kilos of marijuana in sailboat drug bust near Nisyros

Nisyros, Greece - 

About 700 kilos of marijuana were located and seized by the Greek coast guard inside a Turkish-flagged sailboat on Friday

after authorities responded to a distress call issued by the vessel stranded southwest of the island of Nisyros.


The wooden sailboat’s three-man crew said they suffered a mechanical failure and requested assistance. The vessel was first located by the passing Maltese-flagged freighter “Shirvan” and was later towed to the port of Mandraki.
