Super Panga Boat Discovered With 4,000 Pounds of Marijuana

A super panga boat was discovered on a beach in Cayucos Wednesday.  This is only the second super panga to show up in San Luis Obispo County. About 4,000 pounds of marijuana were discovered. Super pangas range from 45 to 55 feet rather than the typical 30 foot boat. The drugs found Wednesday are valued around $10 million depending on the quality of the drugs. Deputies say the pangas originate from Northern Baja Mexico and can get to the Central Coast in a day or two. Deputies are still searching for any suspects involved in Wednesday's smuggling attempt.
