FT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami/AP) — An odd sight floating off the beach of a popular state park on the west coast – a block of cocaine.

On Saturday, a beachgoer found more than two pounds of cocaine floating in waters at Don Pedro State Park, part of a chain of barrier islands extending along the coast just north of Ft. Myers.

The parcel contained 2.58 pounds of powder cocaine.

Charlotte County Sheriff Bill Prummell thanked the beachgoer for alerting them to the suspicious package. The sheriff’s office is now trying to figure out where it came from.
