Cocaine Washes Up on Fort Pierce Beach

FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) — Bundles of cocaine said to be worth $2.2 million have washed up on a Florida beach.

Police in Fort Pierce say beachgoers at Kimberly Bergalis Park spotted the packages Tuesday morning and called 911.

WPTV reports the drugs weighed in at 22 kilos.

An investigation is under way to try and determine where the cocaine came from. It comes a week after 25 packages of cocaine washed up on a military beach south of Port Canaveral.
