SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Police in Puerto Rico have seized 1,000 kilograms (2,205 pounds) of cocaine aboard a boat that became disabled off the island's south coast.

Authorities say they discovered the drugs after a private boat owner called police and said he was towing the disabled boat when someone aboard a speedboat tried to stop him.

A Tuesday statement from police says officers arrested two men aboard the 33-foot (10-meter) boat that had broken down. The statement says the cocaine was found in 32 gasoline storage tanks.
