A third man has been arrested in connection with a panga boat that was found abandoned on the shore just north of Piedras Blancas Lighthouse on Tuesday.
A California Highway Patrol officer saw Jose Lopez Lopez, 44, on Tuesday just after 8:15 p.m. on Highway 1.
The CHP says Lopez initially gave a false name to the officer. He was arrested on suspicion of failing to provide identification as well as providing false identification.
He was arrested and booked into the San Luis Obispo County Jail.
He was arrested because officers believed he was connected to the abandoned panga boat because of items he had on him.
Two men, Luis Osiel Gonzales, 23, and Juan Pedro Gonzales, 23, were arrested earlier in the day.
The search continues for two more men who were believed to have been involved with the panga boat.
