Costa Rican anti-drug authorities confiscated this Monday a little more than 900 kilograms of marijuana that was hidden on a Caribbean island of the country’s coast, according to the Public Security Ministry.

According to the report, both the guard and another employee were arrested with the drugs. Security officials had been monitoring the island for two weeks.
