CHARLESTON, S.C. (WBTW) – The Coast Guard is trying to determine where drugs came from that were found floating 70 miles off a South Carolina coastline.
Two local fishermen reeled in the catch on Sunday off the coast of Charleston — finding 30 bricks of cocaine. Officials said the drugs have a street value of up to $1 million.
Once the drugs were found, the fisherman notified authorities.
The Coast Guard, along with Customs and Border Protection, and the Drug Enforcement Agency are investigating.
