Dozens of bags of cocaine have washed up on the beach of Réville in Normandy. According to the French police, the total is about 800 kilos, with a possible street value of about 60 million euros.

The bags were discovered on Sunday. Yesterday it was established that it was actually cocaine. The drugs were packaged in waterproof packages that could float.

It is unknown where the drugs come from. According to the area’s public prosecutor, drugs are being smuggled from the Caribbean island of Martinique to Le Havre, which is also in Normandy. A drug discovery on the beach is therefore not seen as surprising, but the large amount is.

Additional checks

According to the local news channel France Bleu, the coast will be closely monitored in the near future in case more bags of drugs wash ashore.

At the end of 2019, a large amount of drugs was also found on a French beach. A total of 1,600 kilograms of cocaine washed ashore near Sain-Jean-de-Luz, in the southwest. Drugs are also sometimes found on the beach in the Netherlands.
