Posted on Wednesday, July 9, 2014 1:51pm


An abandoned panga boat presumably used for smuggling has been found abandoned on a Central Coast beach.

San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s deputies found the 30-35 foot long boat on San Simeon State Beach at around 2:30 this morning.

There were no signs of people, or drugs found with the boat, which was equipped with three outboard motors.  Boats of this type have been frequently used to smuggle drugs, and people during the last few years  from Mexico into California.
