MELBOURNE, Fla. (CNN/Gray News) – Hurricane Dorian has sent wind and rains to the Florida coast. It’s also apparently sent bricks of cocaine.
A Melbourne Police officer was patrolling near Paradise Beach Park on Tuesday when a concerned citizen approached him.
The person directed the officer to a suspicious package on the sand. It turns out the package contained a kilogram of cocaine.
It wasn’t the only brick of cocaine discovered on the Florida coast recently.
NBC News reports that police in Cocoa Beach seized a duffel bag that washed ashore with 15 bricks of cocaine inside.
The duffel bag was discovered Friday afternoon, the Sun-Sentinel reports.
Police said one kilo of cocaine is estimated to be worth $20,000 to $30,000 in the Orlando area.
Authorities are now investigating where the drugs may have come from.
