Panga Boat, More Than 3500 Pounds of Marijuana Seized On Central Coast Beach

Posted on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 2:24pm

Authorities say they’ve recovered more than 3500 pounds of marijuana smugglers were apparently trying to get ashore on the Central Coast.

The Coast Guard first spotted a panga boat just after seven this morning.

Someone found the craft about an hour later on the beach in Estero Bluffs State Park, north of Cayucos, and called San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s deputies.

No arrests were reported, but bales of marijuana were found on the beach, and in the boat.
