'5150 and Naked on the Beach' was the other choice for a head..but, hell, that's fairly common in America's finest...

So a Jet Ski is found near the border, and it is "suspicious." If that Jet Ski had been found on the No County coast, the assumption would have been that the rider had fallen off or had been thrown off. Then based on that assumption, a search-and-rescue effort would have ensued. But since this one was near the border, the assumption is that it was used in smuggling of some sort.
