FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - The Coast Guard has seized almost 800 pounds of marijuana off a boat traveling from Bimini.
The Coast Guard Cutter Diamondback was dispatched after officials received reports of a suspicious boat around midnight Saturday. Crew members boarded the 20-foot vessel and found 47 bricks of pot, worth about $725,000.
Two alleged smugglers were transferred to U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.
