March 7, 2013 |  4:28 pm

Authorities on Thursday were investigating the crash of a boat loaded with narcotics on a beach near Vandenberg Air Force Base.

Base officials said they would release more information shortly about the crash, which reportedly occurred just north of Wall Beach.

It was not immediately clear if there were any injuries or arrests.

But authorities said Vandenberg officials had "secured the area" and were continuing to investigate and "search for potential suspects."

Officials did not discuss the quantity or type of narcotics found on the craft. Base personnel were told to avoid the area and contact base security right away if they see suspicious people or activity.
