Navy nabs nearly 2,000 K cocaine on boat at south coast, arrest 3
SANTO DOMINGO.- The Navy on Wednesday seized 1,860 kilos of cocaine and arrested three men aboard a boat some three miles south of the city of Bani (south).
The three men tried to flee on the craft chased by the authorities, with a Super Tucano intercept plane and two speedboats.
The chase began at 11 am and ended around 2pm, after a special Armed Forces unit encircled them to prevent escape, at Palmar de Ocoa Bay.
The Dominican authorities, which acted on information from the U.S. Coast Guard, seized the drug in bundles, the biggest narcotics confiscation thus far this year.
