ARROYO QUEMADA, CA – It’s not strange for trash or a little debris to wash up along a beach (of if you’re in the Gulf, a little oil). But federal authorities were in for a big surprise just north of Santa Barbara. They found a boat!
But this was no ‘Gilligan’s Island’ sort of shipwreck, and Mary Ann wasn’t onboard, but Mary Jane was! Federal authorities found nearly 3,000 pounds of marijuana. They think suspected drug smugglers handling the load got spooked and took off before they could unload the drugs. Officers went looking for the smugglers, but they didn’t find them.
Gives a whole new meaning to ‘high tide,’ eh?!
