Imagine heading out to snorkel in the cold ocean water, and instead of spotting rare fish and sea life, you swim across a black bag full of cocaine.
A snorkeler in the Florida Keys uncovered the 68 pounds of blow this week floating in the water near Craig Key.
According to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, the drugs were baled inside a black bag and wrapped in tape. The bale contained 25 bricks of cocaine worth an estimated $1.5M.
The sheriff’s office turned the drugs over to the U.S Border Patrol. The origin of the drugs is still unknown.

It’s always important to keep your eyes open for random cocaine discoveries. Random bags of cocaine occasionally pop up in odd places like when $880,000 worth of cocaine was found floating in the water off Key West or the $600K worth of coke discovered by a family in South Carolina.
A simple walk on the beach could uncover 78 pounds of the good stuff and change your life. Well, at least until you turn it over to the cops.
