Marijuana found inside surfboard

U.S. Border Patrol agents on Wednesday discovered 36 pounds of marijuana concealed inside a surfboard that washed up on a beach near the border.

The blue board had been hollowed out and glued back together after being packed with marijuana, according to the Border Patrol. Agents found the surfboard while on routine patrol at Friendship Park, which abuts the border with Tijuana.

The drugs had a street value of $29,360, authorities said. There were no arrests.
