They also seized the furniture in which the pot was hidden for smuggling which includes a sofa, chair, china cabinet and bedroom furniture in which 126 packets were hidden. The officers also seized the truck which carried all the furniture.
The same day the sailors from the amphibious transport dock ship New Orleans also recovered
bundles of marijuana (nearly 1,800 pounds of marijuana) which is floating on the coast of San Diego.
