An Unexpected Finding Was Fished Off the Coast of Pompano Beach, Florida
POMPANO BEACH, FLORIDA — July 4, 2018
Fisherman Jorge Bustamante and his family were fishing in the early hours of July 4th when they noticed an unusual item caught in their fishing traps. When they started to unpack it, they discovered a huge bale of marijuana.
For one fisherman, the unusual catch was a high point of his birthday festivities, said his relatives as a joke.
When he posted about it on Instagram on Monday he called it "an early birthday gift from Pablo Escobar," adding that it was "a trip we won't forget for a long time." Some in the comments thought he should have kept his find. “Man you should’ve kept your bday (sic) gift!!” wrote one user.
Mr. Bustamante said they called the Coast Guard, who came to "commandeer" their find.
