An alleged cocaine trafficker was nabbed, along with nearly two dozen illegal immigrants off the coast of Palm Beach.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials say the boat was being used as a maritime smuggling event and its Air and Marine Operations team stopped the activity.

Twenty-two migrants were detained, including an unidentified Colombian national who was recently released from prison.
