NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) — Authorities have seized some 2,100 pounds (953 kilograms) of marijuana from a boat they say docked in the Bahamas after it was seen speeding through nearby waters.

The U.S. Justice Department said Friday that the marijuana is estimated to be worth more than $1.9 million. Officials with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and Bahamas police arrested eight Bahamians they say were hiding nearby.

The boat was docked on the west end of Grand Bahama Island.
