High tides, dangerous rip currents, strong winds, and plenty of rain weren’t the only things Hurricane Dorian brought to Florida’s eastern shoreline; the storm also left drugs on the beaches.
According to USA Today, Brevard County sheriff’s deputies were called to the beach to pick up a number of bricks of cocaine that had washed ashore.
One beachgoer found a package labeled “dinamitar” or dynamite in Spanish. The person called Melbourne police, who confirmed it was a kilo of cocaine.
It’s uncertain where the cocaine came from, outside of the fact the storm carried it to land.
Deputies and officers are spending Wednesday patrolling the beaches to make sure any other dangerous or potentially hazardous debris is cleared.
