Authorities seized a boat Thursday morning reportedly stolen from Broward County that apparently had a huge shipment of drugs.

A boatload of drugs, if you will (sorry).

Law enforcement sources are saying that about 1,000 pounds of drugs were seized.

The major drug bust happened at Currie Park, in the 2400 block of North Flagler Drive, just off the Intracoastal Waterway, according to the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations directorate.

A marine officer reportedly spotted the boat docked around 9:30 a.m. Thursday at the Currie Park marina. 

The vessel had been reported stolen.

Undercover federal agents moved in and found numerous bales of drugs in the boat.

Three people have been arrested.
