Law enforcement officials investigated an abandoned boat suspected of smuggling drugs in Ocean Beach Tuesday, lifeguard officials confirmed.

The 17-foot jet boat was discovered, unoccupied, around 3:30 p.m. on New Break Beach. Lifeguard officials say three Hispanic males were seen getting off the boat, but the subjects were not immediately located.

Four bundles of suspected drugs were found near the boat on the beach, and three additional bundles of drugs were found inside the vessel, authorities said.

Officials from the U.S. Border Patrol, the San Diego Police Department and San Diego lifeguards are at the scene investigating. At this time, no one is in custody.
