Pot seized from boat on Carlsbad beach; three arrested

Three people were arrested and a load of marijuana seized after a panga boat came ashore at a beach in Carlsbad in northern San Diego County, officials said Tuesday.

Two suspected smugglers in the boat were arrested by the Border Patrol and one on the beach.

Smugglers are increasingly attempting to bring drugs and undocumented immigrants into the U.S. through the use of boats that, under cover of darkness, land on the beaches of San Diego County and northward.
