Boat battery trouble leads to drug bust

472 coast guard drug bust boat 16x9


Last weekend the US Coast Guard in San Diego recieved a call from a small boat operator reporting battery trouble and requesting assistance.  The cutter Sea Otter was diverted to assist the boat which was about 25 nm off Point Loma, San Diego in international waters.  However, instead of helping out with a dead battery, the boarding team discovered approximately 1,200 pounds of marijuana that was alledgedly stowed below decks.  Two people were detained and handed over to police.
