Palm Coast, FL - Flagler County Sheriff's deputies were alerted to a suspicious package washed ashore on Cinnamon Beach in Palm Coast on Friday. The beachgoer who found it said that it appeared to be a kilo of cocaine. Deputies tested the white powdery substance that was wrapped in plastic. It tested positive for cocaine.
“These packages have washed up on shore in Flagler County over the years, typically when the storm systems start brewing in the ocean,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “If anyone comes across these packages or anything suspicious on the beach, we ask that you do not touch it and call us immediately. Narcotics can be lethal and must be handled carefully.”
The beach was searched by FCSO's Marine Unit but no more packages were found. The United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) was contacted to assist in the investigation into
the source of the cocaine.
