U.S. authorities unloaded an 8.8-ton shipment of cocaine Sunday that was found on a rusty fishing boat off the coast of Mexico. It was the government's fourth-largest such seizure ever. A Navy destroyer with a Coast Guard law enforcement unit on board stopped the boat, with a crew of 10 men, 250 miles west of the resort city of Acapulco, and towed it to San Diego. The Feb. 24 seizure capped what the Coast Guard called one of the most productive weeks of anti-drug patrols in its history.
