SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Puerto Rican police and federal U.S. law enforcement agents have seized more than 1,300 pounds of cocaine in a central town on the Caribbean island, authorities said Monday.
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency said in a Monday statement that the cocaine haul was detected during a routine operation in the town of Caguas.
Island police found the bricks of cocaine bundles stacked in the back of a van. Authorities say the driver of the vehicle fled the scene on foot.
U.S. agents confiscated the cocaine, which were estimated to have a street value of $14 million.
So far, no arrests have been made.
