ISAF air and ground elements coordinated early Wednesday morning to capture more than 6,000 pounds of illegal drugs in the Maiwand District.
Shortly before 3 a.m., an ISAF Scout Weapons Team, consisting of two OH-58 Kiowa helicopters, observed a suspicious vehicle attempting to evade them. The SWT maintained visual contact with the fleeing vehicle while relaying the information to nearby soldiers.
As the soldiers moved to intercept the truck it stopped and both occupants fled to nearby cover.
