    Taipei, July 15, (CNA) Law enforcement authorities seized nearly 485 kg of ketamine and arrested three suspects in a raid on a fishing boat in the northeastern port of Nanfangao in Yilan County Thursday.

    Local coast guard authorities estimated the value of the haul at nearly NT$500 million (US$15.57 million).

    They suspected that the drugs, packed in rice bags used in China, could have been produced in China.

    The officials said the boat might have obtained the drugs from another Taiwanese ship on the high sea.
