Hurricane Dorian leaves at least 16 kilograms of cocaine on Florida shoreline

Hurricane Dorian leaves at least 16 kilograms of cocaine on Florida shoreline”

The coast saw high winds and high tides on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Hurricane Dorian is making its way north along the southeast coast, sending heavy rain, strong winds-and apparently, a single brick of cocaine crashing onto one of Florida's beaches.

The City of Melbourne said a beachgoer, watching the rough surf in Paradise Beach Park on Tuesday discovered the package and alerted an officer on patrol.

"It's under investigation so we can not release any further description of the package", a spokeswoman said in an email.

The outside of the brick appeared to be marked with the beginning of a word, but the only visible letters are "D-I-A-M-A-N-T", according to the report.

"The item was taken into custody", Mall said. "Our narcotics will conduct a follow-up investigation". The cocaine was secured by federal agents and will reportedly be destroyed.

"We don't know if the incident and drug recovery in Melbourne was related to what we found in Cocoa Beach", he said.

A bag containing 15 bricks of cocaine weighing one kilogram each, washed ashore on Cocoa Beach in Florida on Friday.

Amy Roderick, a spokeswoman with the Drug Enforcement Administration, told ABC News a kilo of cocaine is worth anywhere between $28,000 and $32,000 in the Orlando area.

The duffel bag and its contents were turned over to the U.S. Custom and Border Protection.

Police found multiple bricks of cocaine on two Florida beaches after waves caused by Hurricane Dorian are thought to have pushed them ashore.

The category two storm is moving slowly north along the eastern USA seaboard.
