US Coast Guard arrests 5 near Puerto Rico

The U.S. Coast Guard says it has detained five men who were aboard a boat near Puerto Rico with $190,000 in cash and 300 rounds of ammunition.
The agency said in a statement Friday that the unmarked boat was traveling northwest of the U.S. Caribbean territory when it was seized late Wednesday.
U.S. federal agencies say seizures of suspicious cash in Puerto Rico have increased this year as a result of what they believe is a jump in drug trafficking throughout the Caribbean.
