Oceanside, California: A 26-foot boat abandoned and loaded with bundles of marijuana was found near St. Malo Beach Sunday morning, U.S. Border Patrol agents said. The marijuana on board had an estimated street value of over $4 million.
The weight of the packages totaled 1,079.82 pounds and has an estimated street value of $4,319,280. The vessel was seized by the Border Patrol and the narcotics were turned over to the Maritime Task Force for further investigation.
“I was really surprised to see a drug smuggling boat here in Carlsbad,” Zachary Boyer, who witnessed authorities unload the drugs, told the cable network.
“I noticed a few cops around,” Boyer said. “Then when they started unloading the bundles of marijuana, we knew it was something different. “They were throwing bundle after bundle of marijuana off the boat.”
