Bogota - Colombia's navy says it has seized a shipment of 2.6 tons of cocaine aboard a boat off the country's Pacific coast.

Officials said the drug shipment was seized on Monday in a joint operation with the US Coast Guard.

Captain Jorge Tovar says the bust occurred about 110km off the Colombian state of Choco. He said it was the largest seizure in the past four years in the area.

He said on Tuesday that four people were captured and that the cocaine had been bound for Central America.

Navy Vice Adm. Hernando Wills said that on Monday authorities also found $650 000 in apparent drug money aboard another boat that seemed to be returning to Colombia from Central America. He said one person was arrested.
