$1M of pot on a beach in Los Angeles sounds very rare. The pot, however, washed ashore near Vandenberg Air Force Base on Thursday. On March 7, LAist reported that the pot may have come in on a boat which was found on the beach without an engine. Homeland Security is now handling this case, looking into the mystery.
"Homeland Security ... removed the piles of pot from the sand. They had been covered in trash bags and brush, possibly in an attempt to camouflage the packages," LAist reported. It is unknown if investigators have any idea where this pot may have originated from.
The $1M of pot on the beach left behind very few details. There weren't any people around and no suspects have been named. It is unknown if anyone has been arrested in connection with this case because Homeland Security keeps things very hush-hush. There is an on-going investigation and authorities are working to clear the area. The boat will likely be checked out to see if there can be any connections made to someone who may have been smuggling the drugs.
As far as the weed itself, well, there was a lot of it. Apart from the obvious, the way in which it was bagged could tip off authorities as to where it came from.
The $1M of pot found on the beach may or may not be the only items found. Some think that there could have been other drugs or even money in the bags that washed up on shore.
