The go fast with four suspects on board was discovered by the naval vessel and they tried to get away, but was overtaken by the fast interceptor vessel FRISC of Friesland. After the interception the American Law Enforcement Detachment Team (LEDET), which was on board of the Dutch navy ship, went on board the suspect boat. There, 440 kilos of cocaine were found.

On the way to a U.S. Coast Guard ship, the go fast, which was behind the Friesland and sailed by the LEDET team, almost sank due to the rough sea.

Crew and drugs were then brought on board the Friesland. Several hours later, the drugs and the suspects were transferred to U.S. authorities.
