Safe to say the cops were onto this guy and his girlfriend way before he was unloading on the dock!

A few better ideas than duffle bags.....

1. Load and cover the dinghy. Tow it to a local ramp and put it on a trailer and drive away
2. Load a refrigerator and take it off the boat (needs to be replaced, serviced etc). Cooler might work but you don't want the fishing cops to inspect your "catch!"
3. Load a dresser or other large piece of furniture and take it off the boat saying the owner didn't want it aboard anymore.
4. Use 5 gallon buckets labeled "used oil" and claim it was oil change time.

620 lbs was a lot of drugs but to load it all on the dock is/was insanity.............be more creative next time!

620# @ 6mil is about $600/oz. That's a pretty conservative estimate.

"Investigators also searched the house where Costenbader and Daniel sometimes live in the north county area. Inside, they found two pistols, one long gun, about 55 grams of cocaine and more than $200,000 in cash."


So, I guess if you have a couple guns and some cash you MUST be a drug dealer? WTF?

An old Pot smuggler I knew back in the day would take a heat gun to the seams on his rubber dinghy and open them up and fill the tubes and glue the seams back.

Did it for years back in the day and was boarded coming back from Mexico many times..
