Rangers Recover 25 Kilos Of Cocaine From Beach

Canaveral National Seashore

National Park News

A visitor who was building sand sculptures on the beach on the morning of November 12th found a package on the shoreline. He broke it open with a small shovel, discovered that it contained white powder, and notified staff at the visitor center. Ranger Dave Fuellner and district ranger Mike Chambers responded and conducted a field test, which revealed that the powder was cocaine. The two rangers then searched the beach and found another 25 packages tightly wrapped in plastic and rubber, each measuring about five inches by ten inches by an inch and a half. The total came to about 25 kilos of cocaine, with a street value roughly estimated at $1.5 million. The packages were turned over to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office for destruction.
