Cocaine Bags Wash Up On Beaches

    Many lbs of coke wash ashore.

    Eighty pounds of cocaine worth about $1.5 million washed up near a state park, and officials are trying to track down its origin, said the Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office.



    Navarre Beach State Park workers found a bale of about 28 bricks of cocaine wrapped in plastic and burlap, officials said.



    The cocaine is 90 percent pure, and its street value could be higher if it was "cut" and resold, said sheriff's Deputy Jerry Henderson.



    Though the cocaine was found Saturday, sheriff's officials waited several days to announce the discovery to ensure other no other bales were nearby and prevent the public from hunting for more floating drugs, Henderson said.



    A smaller amount of cocaine - about 4 pounds - was found in Louisiana, said Plaquemines Parish sheriff's Maj. John Marie.



    Traffickers may have dumped the drugs overboard when stopped by federal authorities at sea, Marie speculated.









    Why can't I be the one to find a bale of cocaine floating in the water?! Damn I seriously need to move down to Florida or something.heh



    This also goes to prove that all coke first entering the US has been cut one time and the quality is no better than 90% pure.

    In the town, where I was born
    Lived a man, who sailed to sea
    And he told, us of his life
    In the land, of submarines

    So we sailed, up to the sun
    Till we found, the sea of yeyo
    And we sniffed, beneath the waves
    In our yellow, submarine-o

    We all live in our yellow submarine,
    Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
    We all live in our yellow submarine,
    Yellow submarine, yellow submarine

    As we live, a life of tweak
    Everyone of us has all we need
    sky of blue, and sea of green
    In our yellow submarine.

    COCAINE CONTINUES WASHING ASHORE

    Current Carries Bales Along Gulf Coast

    Nearly four pounds of cocaine, worth up to $10,000 a pound, washed up at
    two places on the west bank of Plaquemines Parish in recent weeks, adding
    to the more than 1,000 pounds that has shown up along the Gulf Coast since
    May, federal and state authorities said.

    Several south Louisiana parishes have found cocaine that has washed ashore,
    and 80 pounds of the narcotic was discovered over the weekend at Navarre
    Beach in Florida, officials of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said.

    Bales of cocaine appeared to have floated with the current to various spots
    along the Gulf Coast, federal officials said.

    Other Louisiana parishes where cocaine has been found on beaches include
    Terrebonne, Lafourche and Grand Isle, federal officials said. In June, 296
    pounds of yellow, shrink-wrapped bricks of cocaine was found about 12 miles
    south of Cocodrie, the largest amount ever recovered in Terrebonne Parish,
    officials said. A commercial fisher found the cocaine on a barrier island
    beach off the Terrebonne coast.

    Drug traffickers may have dumped the drugs overboard in the Gulf of Mexico
    when they feared being stopped at sea by law enforcement agencies, or a
    drug-running vessel may have sunk, authorities said.

    In Plaquemines Parish, separate two-pound packages were found July 8 and
    June 24, sheriff's officials said.

    Last week's find was made by a fisher in Bay Adams, off Empire, Maj.
    Charles Guey of the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff's Office said. The June 24
    discovery was made by a seismic crew in Bay Long, off Port Sulphur, Guey said.

    The drugs were turned over to federal authorities, and no arrests have been
    made in Plaquemines, Guey said.

    There was no information on arrests made in other parishes.

    TRAWLER FINDS 65 POUNDS OF COCAINE

    Empire Discovery Was Likely Dumped

    A trawler in the waters off Empire hauled in a major catch early Friday:
    about 65 pounds of cocaine, worth at least $2 million on the street,
    authorities said.

    Plaquemines Parish Sheriff Jiff Hingle said it is the largest haul of
    cocaine in the parish he can recall.

    The discovery, made in the Bastain Bay area off Empire on the west
    bank of Plaquemines, is believed to be part of more than 1,000 pounds
    of the drug that has shown up along the Gulf coast since May. Federal
    authorities said tests have been inconclusive on whether all the
    cocaine recovered is from the same shipment.

    Authorities have speculated that drug traffickers likely dumped a
    shipment in the Gulf of Mexico, fearing they would be stopped by
    federal authorities at sea. Bales of cocaine have floated with the
    current to various spots along the Gulf coast, federal officials have
    said.

    "If it was part of one shipment it's hard to tell what port they were
    trying to get to," Hingle said Friday. "They probably got nervous and
    decided to jettison the cargo."

    No arrests have been made. Hingle said the 65 pounds found Friday are
    worth about $10,000 a pound wholesale and much more on the street.

    It's the third time since June 24 that bundles of cocaine have washed
    ashore in Plaquemines Parish. Two-pound packages were found July 8 and
    June 24, sheriff's officials said.

    The latest find was bundled into 16 packages found by crewmen aboard a
    trawler, who alerted the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff's Office. The
    drugs are being turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs
    Enforcement. Several south Louisiana parishes have recovered cocaine
    that has washed ashore, with 80 pounds of the drug discovered over the
    weekend at Navarre Beach in Florida, said officials of U.S.
    Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

    Cocaine has also been found along the coasts of Terrebonne and
    Lafourche parishes, and on Grand Isle, federal officials said. Early
    last month, 296 pounds of yellow, shrink-wrapped bricks of cocaine
    were found about 12 miles south of Cocodrie, the largest amount ever
    recovered in Terrebonne Parish, officials said.

    Although saying that I know a fella who when fishing with his friends bout 4 years ago managed to pull up a 55 gallon barrell, which was half-floating.


    Inside said barrell was 38 kilos of wet hash.The seal on the barrell having snapped allowing water in at the bars causing them to turn into a "sea-hash" connoction,has to be scrapped instead of burning. Him and his other friends had their smoke sorted for the year, made a few pounds out of it too.


    Some people have all the luck

    I can't say that would be my first reaction, but I do wonder just how much of the stuff came ashore and WASN'T reported.

    Damn o_O. I gotta start hanging around the beach more. Imagine if you found $600k worth of blow on the beach just chilling there. And at that point in the distribution process, I bet it's pretty pure too.
