A boat that may have been used to smuggle drugs or people into the United States washed up empty Friday morning in Ocean Beach, police said.
A passerby spotted the roughly 20- to 25-foot vessel on the rocks near the Ocean Beach Pier at the terminus of Niagara Street shortly after 5:30 a.m., according to San Diego Police Officer Joshua Hodge. No one was aboard.
The boat was turned over to lifeguards and border patrol agents, the officer said.
