    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) The U.S authorities confiscated one ton (2,121 lbs.) of cocaine drug aboard a Costa Rican-flagged boat intercepted near Galapagos Islands.

    The drug was found in the Capitan Erson, crewed by two Costa Ricans and a Nicaraguan, said Mario Zamora, Security Minister.

    The vessel was detected last Sunday between Costa Rica’s Cocos Island and the Ecuadorian archipelago in the Pacific.

    According to the minister, Captain Erson was previously seized last November when the U.S. coast guard discovered in its hold 1,081 kilos (2,381 lbs.) of cocaine. He added that he did not know why the Costa Rican court returned the boat to its owners.

    Costa Rica and the United States maintain in force a joint surveillance agreement in the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean. EFE
