ST. LUCIE COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - Federal agents make a large drug bust on the waterways of Martin County.

A customs and border patrol agent tracked a boat as it entered the St. Lucie Inlet earlier this month. But as deputies tried to board the vessel, they say, a man threw two weighted bags overboard.

Turns out, they contained more than 30 pounds of cocaine and 40 pounds of marijuana.

Fourty-four-year-old Timothy Dawson of Port St. Lucie is charged with drug smuggling.
