The Dutch naval ship Zr. Ms. Groningen seized a massive 4,500 kilograms of drugs in three busts in the Caribbean this past week. The ship has made nine busts since taking over from Zr. Ms. Friesland and seized over 9,000 kilograms of contraband, the Ministry of Defense said.

During the early hours of August 10, the Groningen dispatched fast interceptor boats to stop a suspicious vessel. They arrested five suspects and fished 550 kilograms of drugs – 450 kg cocaine and 100 kg marijuana – out of the water where the suspects dumped them when they saw the authorities approach.
