As Hurricane Dorian continues to churn, the storm is sending more than just wind and rain to Florida - it's causing bricks of cocaine to wash up on beaches, according to WFTX. "Farewell you poor excuse of a Jeep, May you find peace and existence as another Jeep in the future", said a post on the That'll Bluff Out page.

After Hurricane Irma in 2017, several items washed up ashore including a 12-foot buoy with Russian writing that landed on Dania Beach.

The officers chose to name the small, tricolored pup with floppy ears after Hurricane Dorian.

The Bahamas has struggled for years with fighting the illegal drug trade.


Melbourne police told FOX 35 a beachgoer found a brick of cocaine Tuesday morning at Paradise Beach Park and turned it over to an officer on patrol in the area.

The police later identified this package as containing cocaine.

In a photograph provided by the city, the letters D-I-A-M-A-N-T are visible in black lettering on the package.

Melbourne police were now investigating the brick that had a word beginning with DIAMANT on the packaging. The cocaine was secured by federal agents and will reportedly be destroyed.


The brick's discovery comes a few days after a duffel bag stuffed with 15 kilos worth of cocaine washed ashore about 15 miles away in Cocoa Beach Friday.

Each of these packages with the drug police estimated around 30 thousand dollars.

As Hurricane Dorian came barreling up Florida's coastline, little puppy Dorian barreled into the hearts of the deputies at the Orange County Sheriff's Office. Dorian is now expected to hit parts of Georgia and the Carolinas. The storm is now heading north towards the Carolinas.
