Three held on fuel rule

Three men in a boat were detained Thursday morning at sea apparently operating an ocean-going fuel station.

The men were in a launch with some empty containers and some full ones. They are being held in violation of a law that regulates the amount of fuel that may be carried. The rule is to prevent the refueling of drug boats.

The arrests took place 30 miles off  Boca del Parismina, Limón.
