57 pounds of cocaine found on Vero Beach

Vero Beach is along what became known as the 'Treasure Coast' after coins washed ashore. In 1715 a fleet of Spanish treasure ships sank in a hurricane. That huge haul is still being found. A trove of Spanish gold coins were found in shallow water near Vero Beach in 2020.
A beachgoer came across 20 bricks of cocaine washed ashore at Vero Beach. Bricks had a collective weight of 57 lbs. Local cops collected the bricks and turned them over to the USBP.
