As reported on www.signonsandiego.com

SAN DIEGO – An 18-foot boat used to smuggle drugs washed ashore in Sunset Cliffs with marijuana still on board early Monday morning, authorities said.

The U.S. Coast Guard received a call that a boat was in distress and hitting the rocks about 6 a.m., said Lauren Mack, Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman.

When authorities arrived, the boat had been abandoned. Marijuana was found inside the craft, Mack said. The amount of marijuana found was unknown because authorities have not been able to take a close look inside the boat, Mack said.

The boat is being hoisted from the bottom of the cliffs.
