WASHINGTON, -- The US Coast Guard has seized nearly five tons of cocaine and detained six people aboard a fishing boat in the Eastern Pacific, the Department of Homeland Security announced Friday.

A California-based Coast Guard cutter, working with a US Customs and Border Protections aircraft, on Tuesday intercepted the fishing vessel, LESVOS, approximately 480 km west of Mexico.

Coast Guard members discovered 200 bales containing 10,349 pounds (about 4694 kg) of cocaine hidden within two fish holds, and detained six crew members aboard.

In 2004, the US Coast Guard seized a record of 255,233 pounds (about 115,774 kg) of cocaine, according to figures released by the Homeland Security Department.
