The cocaine was found, assumedly, within the cargo holds following a search that was carried out by the joint forces of the Australian Federal Police, WA Police Force, and Australian Border Force (ABF).

No information on arrests or crew members’ probable involvement was made.

ST PINOT was built in 2013. It flies the flag of the Marshall Islands.
