Officers said there is not much they can do to get the Jeep out with Hurricane Dorian battering the coast, bringing heavy winds and rain to the area.

Hernandez said CBP confirmed that the packages were in fact cocaine and that each brick contained one kilo of the drug.

On Tuesday, as the storm skirted the coastline, a beachcomber made an unusual discovery - a brick of cocaine.

It said the protesters threw "a large amount of explosive devices, grenades and firebombs" and damaged parts of the border fence. Three 13-year-olds crossed the border from the southern Gaza Strip, and a search revealed a knife, the army said in a statement.

On the outside of the package the letters "D-I-A-M-A-N-T" can be seen written on the front in bold - believed to read "diamantes" in full, which is Spanish for diamonds. The package later tested positive for cocaine.

"The item was taken into custody", Mall said. In June, $1 billion worth of cocaine was seized on a ship that docked in Philadelphia whose last port of call had been in the island nation, according to NBC News.

Within hours, police in Cocoa Beach 20 miles north were alerted to a duffel bag that had washed up on the shore, containing 15 bricks of cocaine inside. More than one instance of residents finding drugs on their beaches have been reported to police in the past few days.

Two puppies in Florida were rescued by law enforcement and named after Hurricane Dorian, which swept dangerously close to the state's east coast as a Category 2 storm after wreaking havoc and destruction in the Bahamas earlier this week. The storm is now heading north towards the Carolinas.
