The Helena Star was a retired fireboat seized by the Coast Guard in 1978 carrying 37 tons of marijuana. The "mastermind", Michael Lund, was busted in 2001 in Denver after 23 years on the run. He was sentenced to one year in jail. Today, he would receive at least 30 years to life.

How's that "War On Drugs" working?

In 2013, the boat sank in the Hylebos waterway while awaiting scrapping.

It's the boat closest to the building.
