NBC News reports that police in Cocoa Beach seized a duffel bag that washed ashore with 15 bricks of cocaine inside.

The package, weighing more than 1kg, was found on Paradise Beach in Florida's Melbourne region and handed to police.

The package isn't the only recent ground score along Florida's sands.

Despite warnings from officials, crowds of people still showed up at Central Florida beaches Tuesday to see the storm's potential impacts. This one was a single duffel bag floating to the beach containing 15 more bricks of the white powdery drug.

Hurricane Dorian was slowly making its way up the Southeast coast Wednesday, hitting much of Florida with strong winds and heavy rain.

As Hurricane Dorian creeps along the USA coastline, the storm has left more than US$320,000 worth of narcotics along the shores of Florida.

Friday's event turned up what is likely to be the largest amount found on Cocoa Beach in recent years, according to Hernandez, who has been with the police department for the last 13 years. According to authorities, a kilo of cocaine in the Orlando area is worth anywhere between $20,000 and $30,000.

"Deputy Tolliver checked it out and found this pup & named her Dorian", said the tweet.
