Federal agents seized about $7 million of methamphetamine hidden aboard a 30-foot boat that recently arrived in Oceanside from Mexico, border officials announced Tuesday.
About 540 pounds of the drug were hidden in the hull of the boat and under the floor, officials said.
A 48-year-old man, a California resident and U.S. citizen whose name was withheld, was the lone occupant of the boat. He was taken into custody, officials said.
