Three more Costa Rican drug smuggling suspects arrived in Caldera Thursday.
They had been captured along with 1,772 kilos of cocaine in international waters.
The trio had been aboard a boat named Capitán Luismi out of Golfito when they were spotted by a U.S. Coast Guard patrol plane.
A patrol boat of the Servicio Nacional de Guardacostas picked up the trio off a U.S. boat at sea. Under an agreement between the two countries, Costa Ricans captured on the high seas are turned over to Costa Rican authorities.
