NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) — U.S. federal authorities have seized more than 3,000 pounds (1,360 kilograms) of marijuana worth more than $3 million off the coast of the Bahamas.
The U.S. Coast Guard said Friday that pilots in a plane had spotted a boat dropping off a portion of the drug on Eleuthera Island.
Officials said U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents and Bahamas police arrested three suspects there and then pursued the boat, which eventually ran out of gas.
The Coast Guard said an additional six suspects were arrested and the remaining drugs were seized at that point.
