Vandenberg Air Force Base officials say at least $1 million dollars of marijuana was found near an overturned boat north of Wall Beach on Thursday.
Col. Nina Armagno says the drugs were in a large pile, and it appeared someone had tried to camouflage it with brush from the surrounding area.
Two base personnel discovered the boat abandoned and reported it to base officials around 1:00 pm. Following that discovery, Col. Armagno raised the threat level at the base and emergency officials searched the area. No one associated with the boat was found.
Homeland Security investigators are now in control of the investigation. They have removed the drugs as evidence and are working to remove the boat, fuel and outboard motor.
