Drug Smuggling Boat in Carlsbad

It is truly a surprise to read about a drug boat pulling ashore in such a calm Orange County locale like Carlsbad, but then on the other hand- makes perfect sense doesn’t it?

The police arrested 3 men who landed a boat in Carlsbad on Tuesday morning at 1:30 am. The boat landed near Carlsbad Blvd. and Tamarack. There was 19 bundles of drugs on the boat, and the actual substance has yet to be identified.

The U.S. Border Patrol states that it is not uncommon for that kind of boat to be used to smuggle drugs and/or people into the United States. There has been numerous occurrences of authorities sighting and seizing such boats along the coast of Southern California in recent months.
