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
