PORTSMOUTH, Va. (AP) - A Portsmouth-based Coast Guard cutter is coming home following a counter-drug patrol in the Caribbean Sea.

The Coast Guard says the Forward is scheduled to return to Portsmouth on Monday morning.

The Forward's crew supported Operation Martillo during the 45-day deployment. They worked with a helicopter team and the crew of the Cutter Confidence to seize more than $50 million worth of narcotics during two interdictions of illicit drug trafficking.
