A press release says that the Coast Guard Cutter Mohawk was diverted to the scene after a suspicious boat was seen in the Caribbean on Saturday. Crew members saw one person throw several packages overboard.

The Coast Guard says 68 packages were recovered from the water — and all tested positive for marijuana. Four suspected drug smugglers were transferred to Jamaican officials.

A fourth person was taken to agents with the Drug Enforcement Administration in Key West, along with the 68 bales of marijuana that had an estimated wholesale value of more than $500,000.
