    This story reminds me that a couple decades ago, a black plastic wrapped bail of g washed up on my folks’ beach on Old Robin Road.  My Dad immediately called the authorities.  My Mom said "Not so fast!"  Dad won.  HA!

    What makes you think it wasn’t 100lbs, 25 for the cops, 25 for the finder and 50 to turn in?

    Wondering if a tracking device could have been placed on the package to see if we might identify the real owners before removing it? I’m sure there are plenty of reasons why not, someone do please educate me.
