LOS ANGELES—The U.S. Coast Guard has intercepted two boats northwest of Santa Catalina Island and seized a ton of marijuana and taken eight suspected smugglers into custody. Petty Officer Adam Eggers tells the Los Angeles Daily News that a Coast Guard crew on patrol late Tuesday spotted the vessels on radar.
A short pursuit ended at 11:45 p.m. with the arrest of four men in a boat with the marijuana and four men aboard a companion vessel. The men and marijuana were transferred to Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. There are no other details.
