Ventura County Sheriff's Deputies bust a drug smuggling operation on a Ventura County beach.

It happened early Wednesday around 3am. Deputies were patrolling the area near the Mobil Oil Pier between Seacliff and Mussel Shoals in Ventura when they saw several people loading packages from a panga boat to an RV parked nearby.

When deputies approached the suspects on the boat, they ran in different directions. Sergeant Eric Buschow of the Ventura County Sheriff's office told us three people were arrested but several got away. Buschow says the group was smuggling marijuana from Mexico.
