LONG KEY STATE PARK, Fla. - The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) showed off a bale of cocaine that washed ashore in the Florida Keys.

Twenty pounds of cocaine washed up on a beach in Long Key State Park on Friday.

Long Key State Park is just north of Marathon and just south of Islamorada.

A park ranger found the drugs and contacted the FWC, who then handed over the coke to U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.

The street value of the cocaine is about $3 million.
