$50M worth of cocaine seized near Puerto Rico

Thursday, April 03, 2014

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- Federal authorities have seized $50 million worth of cocaine after intercepting a boat off Puerto Rico's north coast.

U.S. prosecutor Carlos Cardona said Wednesday that more than 1.7 metric tons (3,700 pounds) of cocaine were found aboard a boat headed toward the north coastal town of Dorado.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said authorities are still investigating where the boat had departed from as it headed toward the U.S. territory. Two people have been arrested.

Authorities said Monday's seizure is among the largest in Puerto Rico in recent years.
