The Monroe Co. Sheriff’s Office said on Monday, nearly $2 million worth of packaged cocaine was found on Big Pine Key.

Three bundles, each containing 10 separate packages of cocaine with a total weight of nearly 75 pounds, were found by a resident near the water on Long Beach Road.

Another 25 bundles, with a total weight of approximately 70 pounds, were found just offshore of Big Pine Key.

The drugs were handed over to US Border Patrol.
