The State : Boat Seized Over Drugs

The U.S. Coast Guard seized its first boat in Northern California under the federal government’s so-called “zero tolerance” drug-fighting program. The 50-foot fishing boat, Nicole Marie, was taken over by Coast Guard officers from the Marine Safety Office in Alameda after the discovery of a “small amount” of marijuana, Petty Officer Caroline Feldman said. Authorities had previously announced three other boat seizures in California, all offshore of San Diego, under the zero tolerance policy, which allows federal agencies to seize property found to be carrying illegal drugs.
