Almost 75 pounds of cocaine were discovered floating off the Florida Keys.

A fisherman found the cocaine bricks about 15 miles south of Sugarloaf Key on Wednesday, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.

The packages were in federal waters so a sheriff’s deputy turned the cocaine over to the U.S. Border Patrol, the sheriff’s office said in a statement.
