JUPITER ISLAND, Fla. (WPTV) – It is one of the largest amounts of cocaine to wash ashore in recent memory. Monday night, more than 20 kilos of cocaine washed ashore on Jupiter Island.
The Martin County Sheriff’s office said the drugs likely came from drug trafficking operations off the coast. The staggering find comes amidst efforts to curb drugs in the community.
The sheriff’s office recently wrapped up a two-day drug interdiction on Interstate 95 that resulted in 75 arrests. Tuesday, Martin County Sheriff William Snyder showed an array of drugs, cash, and weapons that had been confiscated.
It is not immediately clear where the 20 kilos of cocaine came from before they washed ashore. No arrests have been made in connection with the washed up drugs.
