IMPERIAL BEACH, Calif. (AP) - The Border Patrol says a Mexican man has been arrested for allegedly trying to smuggle 24 pounds of marijuana ashore on his surfboard off the San Diego County coast.

The man was spotted Sunday morning about 200 yards off Imperial Beach, near the Mexican border.

The Border Patrol says the man threw a blue duffel bag into the water when agents ordered him to come ashore. The man was arrested in the water.

Agents say the duffel bag later washed ashore, with five packages of marijuana worth about $74,400.

The man's name was not released.
