The U.S. Coast Guard said Tuesday that it had seized more than 14 1/2 tons of cocaine from fishing boats off the coasts of Mexico and Ecuador, the most found by one of its cutters during a single patrol.

Twenty-four people were arrested in three separate seizures during the Midgett's two-month patrol.
