SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - Federal agents say they will turn to targeting high-level drug traffickers in Puerto Rico with intelligence gained in a three-month blitz on criminal activity in the U.S. territory.

The new campaign is part of operation "Caribbean Resilience," which began in July 2012 and targets the smuggling of drugs, weapons, money and migrants.

The Department of Homeland Security says agents have so far seized some 53,000 pounds (24,000 kilograms) of drugs, confiscated more than 170 firearms and arrested more than 320 people who face prosecution at federal and local levels.
