Panga Boat Discovered On Central Coast Beach

Posted on Monday, October 7, 2013 4:25pm

Authorities say the mystery continues over the discovery of a panga boat on a Central Coast beach believed to have been used for drug smuggling.

The boat was discovered during a routine patrol by law enforcement officers on a beach more than a mile north of the Cayucos Pier Saturday morning.

No people, or drugs were found at the scene by investigating officers, but there were indications the craft had been used to smuggle drugs.

The more than 40 foot long boat contained a number of fuel containers, common for the boats used to try to smuggle people, and drugs from Mexico into the U.S.
