Authorities found about $6.2 million in marijuana inside the Jamaican-flagged fishing vessel Captain Richard in the Caribbean Sea.
The vessel ran out of fuel and was adrift more than 200 miles from the nearest port in Key West. The U.S. Coast Guard found it Tuesday, and with permission from the Jamaican government, officers took the 60-foot Captain Richard in tow.
After they discovered several hundred packages of marijuana wrapped in plastic wrap and tape, officials detained the ships crew.
They offloaded the 6,500 pounds of marijuana in Key West
