The U.S. Border Patrol this week revealed the discovery of an astonishing $2 million worth of cocaine that recently washed up on the shores of the Florida keys.

Chief Patrol Agent Walter N. Slosar revealed on Twitter that, over the past weekend, "Good Samaritans discovered 126 lbs. of cocaine washed-up along the coastline in the Florida Keys."

"[Border Patrol] agents with support from [the Monroe County Sheriff's Office] recovered the drugs," Slosar wrote. "The cocaine has an estimated street value of nearly two million dollars."


Drugs like cocaine are most often destroyed by incineration when discovered and seized by police officers.
