FORT PIERCE (CBS4) – Plenty of strange items have washed ashore Florida beaches over the years, and now authorities are investigating the discovery of 22 bales of cocaine.

The bundles of cocaine, said to be worth $2.2 million, were found by beachgoers Tuesday at Kimberly Bergalis Park in Fort Pierce. They immediately called 911.

An investigation is under way to try and determine where the cocaine came from.

It comes a week after 25 packages of cocaine washed up on a military beach south of Port Canaveral.
