The identity of the detainees and their criminal group affiliation were unknown by press time.

Elements of the Mexican Navy seized fishing vessel "Jorge M.II" and found in its interior 80 packages containing more than 1,583.67 kilograms (3,491.39 pounds) of cocaine. Seven people were arrested during the operation.

The Mexican Navy, through the Fourth Military Naval Region based in Guaymas, Sonora, reported that the seizure was achieved in the southern part of Islas Marias, Nayarit. This action was carried out through a maritime surveillance patrol operation, in which a defender-type vessel and an interceptor were used.

When authorities intercepted the fishing vessel, they noticed several administrative anomalies and proceeded to take to vessel to secondary inspection. The vessel was inspected again at the Balleto port, where they discovered illicit cargo hidden in its compartments. Canines were able to pinpoint some of the locations where the drugs were hidden.

Later, the fishing vessel was taken to the port of San Blas, Nayarit, where personnel from the Sixth Naval Zone took the detainees into custody. The cargo was handed over to the Attorney General's Office in Nayarit to initiate a formal investigation.

Since March 2021, over 8,400 kilograms (18,518 pounds) of narcotics have been seized in Mexico.

As reported by Borderland Beat, ports and coastal regions are where most drugs are seized in Mexican territory. Between December 2018 and February 2020, approximately 97 percent of the drugs seizures in Mexico occurred in port towns and cities.

These sea ports are strategic corridors for drugs owned by the Sinaloa Cartel and Jalisco New Generation Cartel (CJNG), two major drug trafficking organizations.
