Florida Wildlife Manager Finds $1.2M In Cocaine

NBC NEWS  – More than 30 kilograms of cocaine with a value topping $1 million were seized after washing ashore last month at the Cape Canaveral Space Station in Florida, according to the U.S. Space Force.

The drugs were discovered on May 19 by Angy Chambers, a civil engineer and wildlife manager, who noticed the packages strewn about the beach while conducting a turtle nesting survey, officials said.

The estimated value of the 24 packages of narcotics was $1.2 million, according to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.

Chambers, with the 45th Civil Engineer Squadron, said in a statement she immediately contacted the 45th Security Forces Squadron with Space Force after making the discovery.
