A pack­age con­tain­ing 23 kilo­grams of coke — val­ued at up to $621,000 — was found just south of Mel­bourne Beach. The drugs may have fallen off of a boat or were dumped, au­thor­i­ties spec­u­lated.

Drew Cy­win­ski, 25, was al­legedly high on the syn­thetic mar­i­juana K-2 when he hit his friend so hard, the golf club snapped in half, cops said.
