The U.S. police early on Wednesday seized a Mexican motor boat loaded with more than a ton of marijuana north of Los Angeles and arrested 10 people, the latest in a growing number of arrests of drug traffickers seeking to bring the north across the sea, officials said.

Border Patrol agents found the U.S. vessel of 8 meters in length loaded with numerous packages of marijuana in the Ventura County coast before dawn, said Immigration and Customs Enforcement United States in a news press.

Authorities also seized two vehicles located in the landing area and was believed to be related to the smuggling attempt.

Four of the detainees arrived on board the boat and the other six arrested were found in the landing area, the agency said.

As security has become stricter in recent years in the U.S. border and Mexico, smuggling organizations have started to take drugs and illegal immigrants into the United States by sea.

From January to October 2011, authorities recorded 26 incidents of maritime smuggling in the extended area of ​​Los Angeles, including seven in Ventura County. Since then, there have been 10 other cases, including two in Ventura County and one in Santa Barbara County.

In response to the growing number of incidents in the area of ​​Los Angeles, authorities have expanded the use of marine patrols, ground surveillance and collaboration with the Mexican government.

Wednesday’s seizure came after a notice of the National Guard that the vessel was at sea.
