KITTERY, Maine — A Coast Guard cutter has returned to Maine following a 60-day patrol in the Caribbean Sea.

The crew of the 270-foot cutter Campbell arrived Wednesday at its home port at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery after its assignment working for a joint interagency task force in Key West, Fla., and the 7th Coast Guard District based in Miami.

While on assignment, the vessel was involved in the seizure of about a ton of cocaine found aboard a fishing vessel. The Coast Guard says the cutter crew also worked on maritime exercises with the Nicaraguan Navy and the Panamanian maritime service.
