Florida Keys fisherman’s cocaine catch worth $500,000

A fisherman spotted 25 plastic-wrapped packages which turned out to be high purity cocaine. DEA Miami office said in 2017 that pure cocaine goes for $26,000 to $28,000 per kilogram. Using that price range and the weight range given, the bales are worth $473,000 to $761,600, wholesale.
In February a 32-year-old Florida Panhandle fisherman was sentenced to 6 years in prison after finding a bale of cocaine in the Gulf of Mexico and setting up a distribution network to sell the drugs.

Thomas Zachary Breeding is warning others not to do what he did.
