Colombia’s Navy announced the seizure of 2 tons of marijuana on a boat intercepted on the southern part of the country’s Pacific coast.

According to the navy’s report, after a chase at sea the boat’s crew landed in Salahonda, in the province of Nariño, and escaped.

On board the vessel authorities found more than 2 tons of pressed marijuana, which they said was worth more than $15 million.

As InSight Crime has reported, drug seizures along Colombia’s Pacific coast have decreased in the past two years as cartels have sought new technology to evade interdiction efforts.
