SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic—Authorities in the Dominican Republic say they have seized 1.5 tons (1.36 metric tons) of cocaine and detained three Venezuelans allegedly transporting the drugs in a speedboat.

National Drug Control Agency chief Rolando Rosado Mateo says the suspects were captured at dawn Sunday while they were trying to unload the drugs in the southern beach town of Juan Dolio.

He says agents found bales of white power in the 40-foot (12-meter) speedboat.

Rosada says authorities believe Dominican accomplices planned to meet the Venezuelans and then smuggle the cocaine to the United States and Europe.
