NEW YORK — The Coast Guard, police and federal agents Friday blockaded New York Harbor and systematically boarded every vessel that entered the busy port in a massive hunt for drug smugglers.

By noon Friday, "Operation Glass Eye" had netted only one arrest: a man wanted for drug trafficking and weapons charges.

More than 50 pleasure boats and 10 other vessels, including tugs, and freighters, were boarded.
