BALDWIN COUNTY, Ala. (WALA) - Folks strolling on Baldwin County's white sand beached have come across two kilos of cocaine in the past few days.
The first kilo washed up on Fort Morgan on Saturday, September 21. Two days later, another kilo washed up at Gulf State Park.
The cocaine was pure and in similar packages.
Baldwin County Sheriff Huey "Hoss" Mack said they were likely tossed overboard when a smuggler felt some heat.
“When somebody is out in the Gulf and the expect they are about to be inspected by the Coast Guard or by somebody they’ll just throw the stuff over and after some period time it will wash up on our beach,” said Sheriff Mack.
The wholesale street value of each kilo of cocaine is around $20,000.
