updated: Nov 27, 2012, 12:14 PM

Source: San Luis Obispo Sheriff's Office

Type of Incident: Panga Boat

Date and Time of Incident: 11-27-12, Approximately 4:15 AM

Place of Occurrence: Coast of San Simeon

Victim Information: N/A

Suspect Information: 5 suspects

Details of News Release: On 11-27-12, while on patrol, two San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's deputies discovered an open gate to a field north of the Piedras Blancas lighthouse off Highway One. When they arrived on scene, they discovered a beached panga boat along with five men. The men took off on foot and the deputies gave chase. The deputies were able to capture one of the suspects. A scuffle ensued which resulted in one deputy receiving minor injuries. The other suspects were headed south on foot. A second suspect was apprehended about a mile away from the scene. A search for the other suspects involved Sheriff's deputies, Sheriff's K9 units, a CHP plane and a Coast Guard helicopter. No narcotics were discovered on the panga boat but it is consistent with narcotic smuggling operations. Approximately 30 containers of fuel were floating in the water next to the boat. The boat is thought to be about 28 feet long with a single engine. The boat has been turned over to the Coast Guard. Photos of the panga boat will be sent in a later email.
