Fishermen Find 25 Kilos of Floating Cocaine in Gulf

    The Okaloosa County Multi-Agency Drug Task Force is investigating the recovery of 25 kilograms of cocaine recovered in area waters south of the Destin East Pass.

    Five local fishermen observed a large bale/package floating in the water, retrieved it from the Gulf and pulled it into their vessel.

    When the fisherman saw that it contained numerous individually wrapped packages, they contacted law enforcement. State and federal law enforcement officers responded to the scene.

    The fishermen provided statements and turned the bale over to authorities.

    The Drug Task Force collected and processed the bale and determined that it contained 25 kilograms of cocaine. Federal and state, air, water and land assets have responded to the scene, and this investigation is continuing.

    The street value ($100/gram) is 2.5 million dollars.

    My name is Jason Jones. I'm from Rochester, MN and I'm 35 years old. I scrap metal and work as grounds keeper at a local trailer park. In the winter, I shovel a bunch of driveways and sidewalks to make some extra money and to stay busy. In my free time, I try to find interesting articles about the war on drugs that I can post on Drugs-Forum, so that the information can reach a wider audience.

    No, that is like winning the powerball and then donating it to a bad cause. Such as sally struthers and her warp drive.
