Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers arrested two suspected smugglers Thursday, April 7,  while on routine patrol in Boot Key Harbor in Marathon.

The officers observed a twin-engine, 32-foot Glasstream Marine in the area with two men on board. Officers also observed fishing poles in the upright position in the stern rod holders, according to FWC spokesman Jason Rafter. The officers conducted a vessel stop on the Glasstream to perform a marine resource and boating safety check.
