Αν και δεν είναι η κλασική είδηση, δεν μπορέσαμε να αντισταθούμε στον πειρασμό να την ανεβάσουμε. Δεν αφορά φυσικά την κλάση LCS Freedom, αλλά την LCS Independence. Έτσι, το Independence-class littoral combat ship USS Gabrielle Giffords (LCS 10) με το απόσπασμα την Αμερικανικής Ακτοφυλακής U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) Law Enforcement Detachment (LEDET) 407 συνέλαβαν ένα φορτίο 2.810 κιλών κοκαϊνης στις 5 Δεκεμβρίου. Βέβαια η ανακοίνωση μιλά για suspected cocaine, καθώς πρέπει να γίνει πρώτα ειδικός εργαστηριακός έλεγχος.

Το Gabrielle Giffords ενώ ήταν σε αποστολή του USN, και έλαβε εντολές να αλλάξει πορεία και να αναχαιτίσει ένα Σκάφος Χαμηλού Προφίλ (low-profile vessel, LPV). Το Gabrielle Giffords με το οργανικό τους ελικόπτερο, από το Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 23, μετέφερε το LEDET και μαζί με φουσκωτά συνέλαβαν το LPV. Έτσι το LCS 10 Gabrielle Giffords κατέσχεσε 134 δέματα, με 2.810 κιλά κοκαϊνης, αξίας 106 εκ. δολαρίων.  Το Gabrielle Giffords ανήκει στον 4th Fleet. Τα αμερικανικά LCS συμμετέχουν στις αντιναρκωτικές επιχειρήσεις από την 1η Απριλίου, κατόπιν Ειδικής Προεδρικής Εντολής.

Θα θέλαμε να σας υπενθυμίσουμε πως αύριο θα έχουμε ένα -τελικά ελπίζουμε- άρθρο με ερωταπαντήσεις για τις LCS Freedom, και θα προσπαθήσουμε να απαντήσουμε ότι μείνει αναπάντητο στα σχόλια.
