SAN DIEGO (AP) — Authorities in San Diego say they've seized a smuggling boat loaded with nearly four tons of marijuana.
The Coast Guard says a patrolling aircraft spotted the suspicious boat on Friday about 160 miles southwest of San Diego.
A cutter intercepted it and three people were detained. Authorities say the boat held 257 bales of marijuana, weighing about 7,600 pounds.
The boat was towed to San Diego, where the pot and suspects were turned over to a task force led by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
