Someone stumbled upon $1 million worth of cocaine near the Keys over the weekend, U.S. Border Chief Patrol Agent Thomas G. Martin said.
The Good Samaritan found it floating at sea. The package contained nearly 69 pounds.
This isn’t the first time this has happened in Florida.
In April, a beachgoer in Palm Beach found $1.5 million worth of cocaine that washed-up along the shoreline.
In 2013, the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office said they collected a total of 25 kilograms of packaged cocaine that had washed up on beaches from Ponte Vedra south to Crescent Beach. Deputies said the street value of the drugs would equal $7.5 million.
