Doing our daily surf check this morning it was a dead giveaway something was going on at Ponto Beach as we drove by we noticed the huge satellite antenna on one of the news vans. This panga boat was found around 2am with two illegal’s along with bundles of drugs.

This would be normal if it we’re taken in Europe, but when we saw this guy flying down pch in Carlsbad we knew we had to run him down for a shot.
6:30 this morning as we we’re doing our normal surf check after are stop off at the local coffee shop we came upon a scene of news reporters on the beach between Warm Waters and Tamarack in Carlsbad. Our first thoughts we’re human trafficking. If this was the case why had they chosen Carlsbad to beach themselves being this is close to 50 miles north of the border.
Around 1:30 a.m. 3 men; Mexican national, US citizen and a Nicaraguan national we’re arrested for smuggling 19 bundles (1,500 pounds) of marijuana valued over $800,000.00. The border patrol was waiting on the shore where they spotted the ponga boat approaching the coastline. There were two men in the boat and one man was waiting in the getaway car.
The truck in the middle was initially trying to tow the boat up the beach, but then got stuck and another truck was sent in to tow both the truck and the boat ashore
These are the fuel tanks found on board the boat. With that much fuel on board these guys we’re planning a long trip north
News reporter vans fighting for position
Being it was 6:30 in the morning when we got onto the scene as this news team had been there for over an hour. We we’re thinking do they just sit at the news station waiting for a story to break and then race out to cover it or do they get to go home and go from there
