SAN DIEGO (KABC) -- U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents seized 1,600 pounds of marijuana from an unoccupied boat near Harbor Island, officials said Thursday.

CBP agents patrolling the marina in San Diego Bay boarded the 33-foot Sea Ray vessel Monday night. They summoned the Border Patrol's drug-sniffing dogs, which alerted them to the pot in the ship's cabin, according to CBP.

After further inspection, agents found marijuana with a total estimated street value of $960,000.

No arrests were made and the owner of the boat was not identified as the investigation remained ongoing.
