MELBOURNE, FL (CNN) – Hurricane Dorian sent wind and rain to the Florida coast, but the storm also washed something else ashore.

A Melbourne police officer was on patrol near Paradise Beach Park Tuesday when he was approached by a concerned citizen. The person directed him to a suspicious package on the sand.

It turns out the package contained a kilo of cocaine.

Now the narcotics division is investigating where the drugs originated.
