Brick of cocaine washes up on Florida beach from Hurricane Dorian waves”

A Melbourne Police officer was patrolling near Paradise Beach Park on Tuesday when a concerned citizen approached him.

A Melbourne police spokesperson said the officer found the package "wrapped in a way that was consistent with narcotics". Its track was dangerously close to a long swath of the East Coast from Florida to Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and southeastern Virginia this week.

On the outside of the brick appeared to be the beginning of a word but the only letters visible are "DIAMANT".

Melbourne Police declined to comment further following a DailyMail.com request for comment, citing an active investigation.

Cocoa Beach police found a duffle bag stuffed with 15 kilos of cocaine washed ashore, Florida Today reported.

Police said one kilo of cocaine is estimated to be worth $20,000 to $30,000 in the Orlando area.

The duffel bag was discovered Friday afternoon, the Sun-Sentinel reports.

Dorian is now moving north-northwest after passing near the east coast of Florida.

Volusia and Flagler County, both under hurricane warnings, should expect to see hurricane conditions overnight.

'This rainfall may cause life-threatening flash floods, ' the National Hurricane Center (NHC) warned Wednesday morning.

Weird things wash up on beaches all the time.

After Hurricane Irma in 2017, several items washed up ashore including a 12-foot buoy with Russian writing that landed on Dania Beach.
