The Coast Guard seized a fishing boat carrying 4,500 pounds of marijuana and arrested five Colombians while looking for vessels carrying Haitian refugees between Cuba and Haiti, the agency said Monday. It said the crew aboard the Haitian-registered, 51-foot boat claimed to be fishing but had no fishing gear when the vessel was boarded Saturday.
