Two strangers allegedly sailed across the Indian Ocean to Western Australia with $ 1 billion in illegal drugs attempted to make an outing when the police arrived to arrest them on a small island – but were thwarted by a roaring seal.

The French national Antoine Dicenta, 51, and the British man Graham Palmer, 34, are accused of having landed their yacht on a reef near Geraldton and then fled to Burton Island in a rubber boat, where about a ton of drugs are half covered with seaweed was found.

When local rescue workers searched the affected yacht, there were initially concerns that the occupants of the boat were in trouble at sea, due to the lack of a rubber boat.

While planes were looking for them, a crayfisherman saw someone diving down on the island to hide in bushes while the plane was flying above them.

Suspicions were raised and the police were deployed.

& # 39; When they arrived on the island, the boys ran to their tender and a large, huge seal lay asleep between them and the tender, & # 39; Geraldton Volunteer Marine Rescue Service Deputy Commander Damien Healy told ABC radio on Monday.

& # 39; They woke it up and jumped up with his big chest out and roared at them.
