THE ACES ON BRIDGE
Police said a suspicious package found on the beach Tuesday turned out to be cocaine.
Ivan J. Oqueli, 27, of Miami, told police he picked up the package while walking on the shore and brought it to where he works as property manager at 640 S. Ocean Blvd. He then called the Police Department.
The black rectangular package was wrapped in clear tape and was about 10 inches by 8 inches and 2 inches thick, according to the police report.
The black plastic wrapping had a 5-inch cut on one side and contained a clear plastic wrapping with a white powder within. On the other side of the package, there was a white piece of paper with “100 percent pure” written on it.
The package weighed 1,300 grams and tested positive for cocaine.
Police canvassed the area of beach, but found no other suspicious packages. — WILLIAM KELLY
