About 18 undocumented immigrants were taken into custody after being found on a panga boat in El Segundo on Wednesday morning.

The boat was located at The Strand and 45th Street, about two miles south of LAX. El Segundo police and the Coast Guard detained the immigrants when the boat ran aground near the NRG power plant.

It's not clear where the immigrants are from. Investigators say no drugs are involved, and they are checking those detained for criminal backgrounds.
