A sleepy beach in the Florida Keys had more cocaine on in this weekend then your average South Beach nightclub. A Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officer found twenty pounds of the white stuff sitting on the shores of Long Key State Park on Friday.
Wrapped into footlong bricks, the coke is estimated to have a street value of somewhere between $500,000 and $700,000. The bale was handed over to U.S. Customs and Border agents.
The Keys Citizen also reports that several bricks were also found in Fort Zachary Taylor State Park by park staff.

Long Key State Park is located near the middle of the Keys, while Fort Zack is in Key West. No word if the two discoveries could be related.
Authorities are still investigating the incidents, and no arrests have been made.
