Navy officials say that close to a tonne of cocaine was seized from a boat abandoned Saturday by smugglers in Petatlán, Guerrero.
The small, high-speed craft was sighted during a surveillance operation 148 kilometers northeast of Acapulco.
A sea and air operation chased the boat to shore in the town of El Calvario, where its occupants fled.
Federal officials found 800 kilograms of cocaine, along with a large supply of fuel.
The navy has mad a number of such seizures in recent months.
