On 10th November 2017, a woman while walking along the shore found cocaine wrapped in a package. She immediately reported this to Sheriff’s office.
Authorities then found about 50 pounds of cocaine that was washing the shores of Florida beach.
The package was found lying close to a sailboat that reached the shore during Hurricane Irma.
Richard Threlfall, who has visited the shore, said, “You would think that South Florida would get the cocaine washing up—not middle, or central Florida. It’s a surprise.”
The special investigation unit grabbed the cocaine and no further cocaine washing ashore was reported by the investigators.
