Man reels in kilo of marijuana off Florida coast

A Florida man who was fishing off of Pompano Beach Monday caught what he said was an “early birthday present from Pablo Escobar”–a kilogram of marijuana.

The Sun Sentinel reports Jorge Bustamante, posted photos of the discovery to his Instagram account after he notified authorities. When the Coast Guard arrived, officials confirmed the package was, in fact, marijuana.

The Coast Guard did not yet know where the package came from or how long it had been in the water.
