The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office received a call after a panga boat was spotted off the coast of San Simeon near the Piedras Blancas lighthouse at 6:30 this morning.
Sheriff's deputies and agents with State Parks and the Department of Fish and Game responded to the beach. A California Highway Patrol plane and helicopter were also seen circling the area.
Along with the panga boat, deputies said they found a large number of bales of what appears to be marijuana.
A witness said people on the beach, near the boat, were carrying the parcels to a motor home.
A white truck and a black sedan were also spotted and believed to be connected to the motor home.
Multiple traffic stops were held resulting in two suspects being arrested in the sedan and 12 suspects from the motor home.
Officials are still on scene investigating the incident.
