The US Coast Guard has seized 5 440kg of cocaine from a vessel in the Eastern Pacific in one of the largest busts of its kind.

The drugs are valued at $181m.

About 1 800kg of the cocaine was lost when the vessel sank during towing.

KNTV reported on Thursday that Chief Warrant Officer Allyson Conroy said the crew also apprehended four suspected smugglers. Names were not released.

The bust was made about 320km south of Mexico last month. It was not announced until Wednesday.

The drugs were found on a semi-submersible vessel, which is mostly submerged, with just the cockpit and the exhaust pipe visible above water.
