GALVESTON, Texas - Police say a jogger on a Southeast Texas
beach has found a burlap bag containing 55 pounds of cocaine.
Galveston police Capt. Jeff Heyse (hys) says the man was running
on Indian Beach when he noticed the sack along the water.
The Galveston County Daily News (http://bit.ly/qpM4Pt) reported
Wednesday that the man, whose name hasn't been released, was unable
to open the sealed bag so he took it home. Heyse says the man then
cut through the packaging and discovered 25 bricks.
He contacted police, who determined the packets, discovered
Monday morning, contained cocaine.
Heyse says the bag was probably dropped from a boat and it's not
the first time that cocaine has washed up on the beach.
Federal authorities could analyze the cocaine to try to
determine the origin.
