Federal investigators say a 20-foot Panga boat carrying 80 pounds of marijuana worth up to $96,000, capsized on a Santa Cruz beach Monday. The boat washed up in heavy surf on Four Mile Beach around 11 a.m.

Investigators say they believe the boat left Mexico with a full load and most of it was unloaded before the boat capsized.

Another Panga boat was captured in July at Shark Tooth Cove near Davenport. That boat was found with 175 bundles of marijuana worth $2.1 million on board.
