FRIPP ISLAND, S.C. -- A family visiting South Carolina fished a big package from the ocean, took it to their rental home and opened it up, finding about 44 pounds (20 kilograms) of cocaine.

Authorities assessed the cocaine's value at more than $600,000. Officials are working to determine its origin.

Bromage said narcotics don't frequently wash up in the county. He thinks Hurricane Dorian may have pushed it ashore.
