Man Discovers  $1m Worth Of Cocaine  Floating At Sea Off Florida Keys


LAGOS  JUNE 23RD (NEWSRNAGERS)-Recreational boaters off the coast of the Florida Keys recently found 65 pounds of cocaine floating in the ocean, authorities said. Monroe County Sheriff’s Office

Earlier this month, divers found 25 kilograms of cocaine about 100 feet underwater off Key West. Images released by the sheriff’s office showed packages marked “Nike SB,” with imitations of the footwear brand’s iconic swoosh logo on the front. The very next day, the same amount of suspected cocaine was found washed up on Dauphin Island, Alabama.

Last month, a beachgoer found about $1 million worth of cocaine washed up along the Florida Keys, CBS News Miami reported. U.S. Border Patrol agents said that package contained 65 pounds of cocaine.

Drug traffickers routinely transport cocaine through the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico using a variety of vessels — and sometimes the packages are marked with distinctive designs.

In January, the Colombian navy seized a so-called narco sub loaded with more than 1,000 pounds of cocaine in the Pacific Ocean, and many of the parcels featured an insignia of a scorpion.

In 2023, packages of cocaine worth more than $100,000 washed up on several Florida beaches. Each package was marked with a different design, including one that appeared to mimic the Chanel logo.

Also last year, Tampa Mayor Jane Castor, while on a fishing trip with her family, reeled in 70 pounds of cocaine. Those bricks of narcotics were emblazoned with butterfly designs.

Colombia produces about 60% of the cocaine found in the world.
