POINT LOMA: Border Patrol seizes boat filled with marijuana

(CNS) – One person was taken into custody late Tuesday afternoon
after a boat loaded with marijuana was found floating in the ocean near Sunset
Cliffs.

The vessel was spotted off the coast near Point Loma Nazarene University
about 3:30 p.m., according to San Diego police and the U.S. Border Patrol.

Lifeguards brought the small boat to shore, and federal personnel seized
it along with several bundles of cannabis.

By early evening, a suspected trafficker believed to have been involved
in the failed smuggling attempt was in custody, USBP Agent Jerry Conlin said.
It was not immediately clear if the detainee had been aboard the vessel, the
spokesman said.
