Police have said that cocaine estimated to be worth £133m washed up in different packages on the Normandy coast in France
Authorities in France have found over 2.3 tonnes of cocaine which they said has washed up on the French coastline.
According to the Guardian on Thursday February 2, the drugs were found in separate packages
Officials said that the total street value of the drugs is estimated at €150m (£133m).
Several bags first landed on the beach on Sunday, weighing 850 kilograms. Six more eventually were found near the beach of Vicq-sur-Mer.
The Police said they “are still uncertain where the cocaine came from – whether traffickers threw it overboard deliberately to avoid arrest, or whether it came loose from their boats in heavy weather”.
Aerial surveillance is now being conducted in the area by the local maritime authorities who are searching the water to see if more such packages can be found.
