LOMPOC, Calif., March 8 (UPI) -- California authorities said they found a large amount of marijuana, worth about $1 million, near a crashed boat near Vandenberg Air Force base.

Homeland Security investigators removed the marijuana after the discovery Thursday, the Los Angeles Times said.

Officials said they are continuing to search for suspects, and it's not clear if anyone was hurt in the crash.

Base personnel were told to avoid the area.
