The drug interception was conducted via helicopter by the Harriet Lane crew alongside members of the USS Wichita. According to the Coast Guard,"The helicopter disabled the vessel and vectored in Harriet Lane's small boat with an embarked boarding team."

"Harriet Lane crews also conducted multiple at sea transfers of suspected illegal narcotics and drug-smugglers with the Dutch Navy aboard HNLMS Holland and facilitated the at-sea interdiction of a suspected drug smuggling vessel by the French frigate Ventôse," the statement added.
