The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office is released new information regarding the panga boat that was discovered on Wednesday near San Simeon Beach. Five additional suspects are now in custody.

At about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, the Sheriff’s Office received a report of two men hiding out in a creek bed in Cayucos. Sheriff’s deputies located the men and arrested them for their involvement in transporting marijuana in the panga boat.

Six hours later, at about 3:30 p.m., the Sheriffs Office received a call about three men hiding underneath the pier in Cayucos. Those men were also located and arrested.

All five are now in custody on charges of transportation of marijuana for sale, possession of marijuana for sale and conspiracy. This now brings the total number of suspects associated with the panga boat to 23.

Earlier on Wednesday deputies arrested 18 suspects when they noticed a panga boat ashore north of San Simeon. The deputies followed two vans and a motorhome and stopped them.

Four bales of marijuana were discovered still on the boat. The suspects are in custody on charges of transportation of marijuana for sale, possession of marijuana for sale and conspiracy. Investigators confiscated 144 bales of marijuana for a total of 3,465 pounds. It’s estimated to have a street value of 2.7 million dollars.
