CAPE COD, Mass. -

Coast Guard officials seized more than 1,200 pounds of cocaine and detained two suspects off the coast of Cape Cod.

They estimate the value of the drugs at more than 20 million dollars.

On Monday, the coast guard stopped the sailing vessel Elegance about 500 miles east of the shore.

Coast Guard officials say the boat was riding suspiciously low in the water.

Upon boarding the vessel, officials found the drugs and took two crew members into custody.
