In May 2013, the St. John's County Sheriff's Office said they had collected a total of 25 kilograms of packaged cocaine that had washed up on beaches from Ponte Vedra south to Crescent Beach.

The deputies noted that the illegal drugs' street value would equal a total of $7.5 million. At the time, the deputies showed off the cocaine, and the drug agents said their initial assessment showed that the cocaine was intended for somewhere along the coast of Florida, but it ended up in the ocean.

SJCSO Cmdr. Chuck Mulligan said the discovery of the drugs would make a drug dealer very unhappy. Mulligan noted that the drug trafficker lost a great deal of value in the cocaine."

The sheriff's office said a member of a company that rescues sea turtles in the area found the first package of cocaine. The rescuer said she came across what she described as a trash-like bag on Crescent Beach, and when she opened it, she saw a bunch of little bags inside.

She then brought the package to the Crescent Beach substation of the Sheriff's Office, who confirmed the bags contained cocaine.
