Load of cocaine confiscated off Coco

The U. S. Coast Guard seized more than two tons of cocaine from a fishing boat found off the coast of Isla del Coco Monday.

Three Costa Ricans and one Nicaraguan who were aboard the vessel were detained. Two of them were said to be from Quepos while another lives in Puntarenas.

A Fuerza Pública report detailed that there was 2,300 kilograms of cocaine onboard when the U.S. patrol searched the ship named Goliat. The drugs were separated into 113 packs with about 20 kilograms in each container.
