Crews worked to unload fuel tanks on a 90-foot fishing boat seized in a drug raid off the coast in the Bay Area so the boat could be searched for hidden compartments, the Coast Guard said. No contraband was immediately found on the boat, which was seized off Half Moon Bay and towed to San Francisco after San Mateo County sheriff's deputies spotted a suspected drug-smuggling operation along the coast, the Coast Guard said.
