Bricks of Cocaine Wash up on Florida Beaches from Hurricane Dorian Waves

Maybe this is why Hurricane Dorian slowed down?

More than a dozen bricks of cocaine washed up on two Florida beaches Tuesday from waves churned up by Hurricane Dorian, police said.

At around 8 a.m., a Melbourne police officer on foot patrol at Paradise Beach Park was alerted by a beachgoer that something suspicious appeared to have washed ashore.

When the officer checked it out, he found a package “wrapped in a way that was consistent with narcotics,” a Melbourne police spokeswoman said.

The brick was tested and was determined to be a kilo of cocaine, the spokeswoman said, adding that it will be destroyed.

On the outside of the brick appeared to be the beginning of a word but the only letters visible are “D-I-A-M-A-N-T.” Melbourne police declined to comment on what was written on the brick, citing its investigation.
