Two men in custody after Del Mar beach drug bust (Sam Spital)

Commentary by Drug Defense Lawyer Sam Spital:

“On November 25, 2012, it was reported in the UT SAN DIEGO online edition that approximately 2000 pounds of marijuana was seized at about 3:45 a.m. in clear view in two trucks at a Del Mar beach parking lot. It is believed the suspects were waiting for others to buy &/or distribute the marijuana, and because it was foggy they did not think anyone would see them.

In what may be a related event, an abandoned boat washed up to the shore. If not part of drug trafficking, it may have been used to smuggle people across the border.

The writer did not elaborate upon any other facts in order to better evaluate a possible defense strategy.”
