Lobster hunters in Florida caught more than they bargained for with a brick of cocaine labeled “2024.”
According to Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, the lobster hunters found the brick of suspected cocaine at around 2:55 pm Sunday off the coast of Islamorada.
Islamorada Capt. Derek Paul and Lt. Charlene Sprinkle were on marine patrol conducting resource checks and recovered the suspected drugs.
The brick was turned over to the U.S. Border Patrol, according to MCSO.
Readers of Tampa Free Press may recall in May when a similar package of cocaine labeled ‘2024’ was discovered on the Atlantic side of Key Largo by a group of snorkelers.
The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office responded to Shoreland Drive, where the brick was brought ashore and turned over to the U.S. Border Patrol.
The approximate weight of the brick was not immediately available.
