The Servicio Nacional de Guardacostas detained six men in a boat off of Limón Centro over the weekend after being alerted by the crew of a British frigate carrying a detachment of U.S. Coast Guardsmen aboard.

The ministry said that the crewmen of the fleeing boat tossed nearly a ton of marijuana into the sea. The marijuana appears to have originated in Jamaica, said the ministry.
