Cocaine washes ashore in Ft. Pierce

FORT PIERCE, FL (WFLX) - Twenty-two kilos of cocaine washed ashore along a Fort Pierce beach Tuesday morning.

People walking along the shore at Kimberly Bergalis Park spotted the packages and called 911.

Police arrived and secured the area. They say the drugs have a street value estimated at $2.2 million.

Officers will launch an investigation to try and determine where the cocaine came from.

Just last month, 25 packages of cocaine washed up on a military beach just south of Port Canaveral.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Fort Pierce police.
