Miami: Beachcombing Was Never Like This

Miami Herald, Big coke float a mystery,

A police officer made an unusual discovery in Hollywood Tuesday: a half-million dollars’ worth of cocaine.

The cocaine — about 37 kilos (more than 81 pounds), wrapped tightly in cellophane — had likely been at sea for a month before washing ashore at North Beach Park, 3501 N. Ocean Dr., said Capt. Tony Rode, a Hollywood police spokesman.

The cellophane package was coated with barnacles, he said.
