On a casual walk along the beach at Jefferys Bay main beach, beachgoers who were strolling with their pooches reportedly stumbled upon a little more than a few seashells.
A tender R20 million worth of cocaine had washed out from the ocean to which the unassuming beachgoers decided to quickly get the police on the line to investigate.
“The discovery of the consignment washed ashore was made by people walking their dogs on the beach. Upon examination, they called the police about what seemed to be a drug consignment. No arrests were made at this stage, pending ongoing investigation,” Hawks spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Philani Nkwalase as per The South African.
The total weight of the “pure white cocaine” bricks was around that of a small human at roughly 46kg.
The ‘snow package’ has since been sieved for forest analysis and referred to Gqueberha’s Haws Serious Organised Crime Investigation unit, as IOL reports.
An investigation is currently underway and the police are reaching out to the J-Bay community for any information.
No arrests have been made.
