On Wednesday afternoon in Florida Keys, a snorkeler who was doing his routine snorkeling discovered something he certainly didn’t expect at all. The man found a black bag wrapped in tape and inside the bag was 68 pounds of cocaine.
According to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, the cocaine was baled inside a black bag wrapped in tape. The drugs were then taken to the U.S. Border Patrol, which stated the cocaine stash was worth over $1.5 million.
On Twitter, Border Patrol Miami Sector’s Chief Patrol Agent, Thomas G. Martin mentioned the incident, while thanking the snorkeler, who was simply called ”a good Samaritan.”

It was not confirmed how the drugs got there in the first place and where they actually originated from. Further investigations are likely to be conducted soon enough.
