Florida Fisherman Hooks 60 Pounds of Cocaine



(Newser)

A Florida fisherman recently found something fishy beneath a dock in the Keys. Per ABC News, the angler was in Islamorada on Saturday when he spotted a mysterious package. Upon closer inspection, it turned out to be upwards of 60 pounds of cocaine wrapped in plastic. According to the Sun-Sentinel, the unidentified fisherman turned the jaw-dropping find into authorities after using a net to fish it from the water. The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office says they’ve since handed off the goods to federal authorities. (Not all fishermen decide to take the straight-and-narrow route. In 2017, Thomas Breeding of Florida was charged for allegedly distributing cocaine he found while fishing in the Gulf of Mexico.)
