Walking along the beach is almost always an enjoyable thing to do. There’s the sense of calm you experience being so near the water, the satisfying feeling of the sand beneath your feet, the soothing sound of the waves, and, if you’re Jeff Stolowitz, there’s also the 11-pound parcel of weed you found yesterday.
The Orlando Sentinel reports that Stolowitz discovered the package Saturday morning during his regular walk on Daytona Beach. The 52-year old usually picks up trash during his strolls but this was something different.
“I couldn’t believe it,” he said of discovering the 18-inch long package. Upon closer inspection, Stolowitz spotted what he believed was blood along one side, so he called the police.

Volusia County Beach Safety officers quickly arrived and realized the package contained a large amount of cannabis. Volusia County Beach Safety Capt. Mike Berard guess that without the water weight, the weed would’ve weighed five pounds. Unfortunately for Stolowitz, Volusia County Beach officials destroyed the drugs soon after testing them.
“I honestly had no idea what it was,” Stolowitz told the Sentinel. “If I had known it was weed, we probably wouldn’t be here right now talking.”
