Elderly Couple finds Kilo of Coke on PC Beach


PANAMA CITY BEACH - Panama City Beach police say an elderly couple found a package of cocaine on the beach.

Police got a call shortly before 7:00 Tuesday morning from Kerry Stroud, the manager of the City Pier. He said an elderly couple found a suspicious package between the pier and the Flamingo Hotel. The package was a hard rectangle block sealed with a clear wrap.

Police cut a small hole in the top of the package and found a white, powdery substance inside. He did a field test on the powder, which tested positive for cocaine.

The weight of the cocaine is 2 pounds, 10.2 ounces.

Police don’t know where the package came from. But they know where it’s going. Chief Drew Whitman tells News Channel 7 they will turn the package over to the Drug Enforcement Agency in the near future.
