Costa Rican agents made the largest marijuana bust in the Central American nation's history, seizing 4.4 metric tons of the drug found in an abandoned boat, police said Saturday.
The marijuana - enough to roll 17,600 joints, police said - was discovered Friday during a joint patrol with the US Coast Guard off the country's Pacific coast, Costa Rican police said in a statement.
The ship's crew fled, abandoning their 15-meter-long boat near the border with Panama, where they appear to have fled to, police said. No arrests have been made.
