SANTA BARBARA (KTLA) — Santa Barbara County officials were trying to determine Monday how $4 million in marijuana ended up on a local beach.

The drugs were found next to a boat on Sunday at Arroyo Quemada Beach.

Sheriff’s deputies said they found an estimated 2,000 pounds of marijuana wrapped in plastic bags on the beach.

They also found an abandoned 30-foot panga style boat with more than 20 fuel containers.

Deputies suspect the drugs were hidden in those containers.

This is the second big pot discovery this month in Santa Barbara County.

Earlier this month, an estimated $1 million in marijuana was discovered near a boat that had crashed on a beach near Vandenberg Air Force Base.
