U.S. Coast Guard returns 33 migrants to Haiti

The U.S. Coast Guard has returned 33 migrants to Haiti who agents intercepted at sea earlier this week.

The agency said in a news release that the 27 men and six women who had been trying to enter the United States were returned to Haiti on Friday.

Crew members found six softball-sized packages of marijuana floating approximately 100 yards from the vessel.

They discovered on board three other packages of marijuana and a package that tested positive for amphetamines. The Coast Guard crew transferred the Haitians to their vessel and destroyed the other boat since it posed a hazard.

A Coast Guard cutter encountered the Haitians on Monday on an overloaded boat about 35 miles northeast of Tortuga, Haiti.
