25 Bricks of Suspected Cocaine Disguised as Nike SBs Found by Scuba Divers in South Florida

Scuba divers in South Florida made a shocking discovery when they found 25 bricks of suspected cocaine. The drugs, with an estimated value of over $1 million, weighed over 66 pounds and were cleverly disguised with counterfeit Nike SB emblems. The divers initially thought they had stumbled upon debris on the seabed near Key West, but upon further investigation, they found the bundles of probable cocaine. Law enforcement authorities were called to the scene and the narcotics were handed over to the U.S. Border Patrol.

The Monroe County Sheriff's Office shared a photo on Facebook of the scuba divers' findings. The post stated that the divers had recovered twenty-five kilos of suspected cocaine, individually wrapped, at a depth of 100 feet in the Atlantic Ocean. The Sheriff's department responded to a report from the divers, who initially believed they were clearing garbage. The alleged drugs were then handed over to the U.S. Border Patrol.

Samuel Briggs II, the Acting Chief Patrol Agent of the U.S. Border Patrol Miami Sector, confirmed the discovery of 25 bricks of suspected cocaine weighing approximately 66 pounds. The drugs have an estimated value of over $1 million. Briggs shared a video showcasing the scuba divers' findings and stated that a concerned individual in the Florida Keys had alerted authorities about a suspicious package floating in the sea. The package was found to contain cocaine and was confiscated by the U.S. Border Patrol.
