Millions of Dollars Worth of Cocaine Found Near Louisiana Coast
No, it's not snowing in Southern Louisiana... That's just a ton of cocaine.
Stories just don't wash up like this every day. A work boat nearly 50 miles off the coast of Louisiana was in for quite the discovery when they drifted upon over a million dollars worth of cocaine. The folks on the boat decided to do the right thing and haul the load of cocaine back to the Port of Iberia and turned it into the authorities.
The package contained dozens of individually wrapped and sealed bundles of cocaine. The package was very large as a whole, weighing exactly 75 lbs. Clearly, the drugs were drops in the ocean for a pick-up, but the pick-up luckily was never made and this cocaine will never see the streets of the US.
Props to the boat workers who did the right thing immediately by calling the authorities.
