Three in boat detained after marijuana found

A crew of a Servicio Nacional de Guardacostas patrol boat detained three persons and confiscated 38 kilos of marijuana Monday in the Samay lagoon in Barra del Tortuguero in northeast Costa Rica.

The coast guard said that the men were in a boat and fled when they saw the patrol. Coast guard crew members pulled three packages from the water, and they said these contained marijuana. They also managed to intercept the boat with the three men aboard, they said.
