On Thursday, a large amount of marijuana worth an estimated $1 million was discovered on a beach near Vandenberg Air Force Base in Northern California.
According to a statement from Vandenberg officials, the marijuana was found near a capsized boat and was removed by Homeland Security officials.
Vandenberg officials were originally continuing to search for potential suspects, but the case was then taken over by Homeland Security. Base personnel were told to avoid the area and contact base security if they noticed any suspicious activity.
In the base’s statement, they said that plans are currently in place to remove the boat, fuel, and outboard motor.
