New Zealand authorities found US $ 2 million worth of cocaine were smuggled off a beach in New Zealand, forcing police to ask people to hand over any packages they found.

Police were deployed to the Bethells beach in west Auckland last night, when several packages of drugs were found on the beach.

“Police have found and detected 19 parcels, and test results confirmed that it contained cocaine,” said Inspector Colin Parmenter.

Parmenter estimated the cocaine was worth US $ 2 million.

Local media reported that the package was placed in a net and believed to have been in the sea for quite some time, based on the condition of the shell found on the net.

“Although it is not always possible to find other packages on the beach, we do ask people to contact us immediately if they find any packages.

“We will also send the police to the beach for a few days, to check if any packages are found here,” he said.

In 2016, 500 pounds of methamphetamine worth nearly NZ $ 500 million was discovered on a beach in northern New Zealand.
