US authorities seized about 18.5 tons of cocaine with a street value of $500 million in the eastern Pacific Ocean, the US Coast Guard said on Friday.

The cocaine was taken off the Coast Guard cutter James in the Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale on Thursday after it was confiscated from 15 drug smuggling vessels in the international waters, the Coast Guard said.

Multiple US Coast Guard cutters helped seize the drugs of Mexico, Central and South America, it said.

Some 49 suspects were also arrested and will be prosecuted in southern Florida, the Miami Herald reported.
