Nude beach visitors were treated to quite the surprise on Tuesday when a boat carrying 80 pounds worth of Marijuana capsized in Santa Cruz, California.
According to officials the watercraft left Mexico with thousands of pounds of weed. The boats captain and crew were able to unload most of the marijuana before the boat was abandoned.
The boats crew quickly disappeared and police have yet to find any leads.
According to a Santa Cruz sheriff’s deputy, “This is lower grade marijuana than we see in Santa Cruz. “
Even with its lower grade the weed could have fetched $96,000 on the open market.
Only in a place like Santa Cruz could a police officer talk more about the bad quality of the pot seized than the street value or impact of the bust.
The boat was also filled with gasoline containers which likely helped the crew make their long journey.
Officials have not yet determined why the marijuana carrying boat capsized.
Following news of the marijuana boats capsizing on a nude beach this video report was issued:
Would you jump in the water and save 80 pounds of marijuana if you saw it going down with the ship.
More to follow as further details are released.
