Cocaine and marijuana worth more than $ 1 million washed up on a Alabama beach last week, just days before families celebrated Memorial Day weekend.
A package with 21 pounds of cannabis and a kilo of cocaine was discovered on Tuesday at Orange Beach.
It was found on the beach by beachgoers in the Gulf of Mexico, about 50 miles southeast of Mobile.

Drugs worth more than $ 1 million washed up on Orange Beach near Mobile, Alabama, last week
But on Thursday more cocaine washed up, this time no less than 38 kilograms.
The package was discovered outside of Phoenix 10 Condominium, near the Flora-Bama Lounge, about a 15-minute walk from the first location.
It is believed that the bundles had been in the water for a long time when they were covered with barnacles.
It is possible that they were thrown from a ship.
Now federal authorities, including the Department of Homeland Security, US Customs and Border Protection and the US Coast Guard, are investigating the origin of the bundles.
They look at data for the water flows to determine from which direction they can come.

The second barnacle-covered bundle was discovered outside of the Phoenix 10 Condominium
Local residents could not believe the find.
& # 39; I mean, it's like & # 39; n family-friendly beach, you wouldn't hear or think this would happen here, & # 39; Nick Rodriguez said Fox 10 about the medicines, which weighed 86 pounds in total. & # 39; That's pretty crazy. It's a lot. & # 39;
Another added that the discovery was unusual.
& # 39; It is surprising for this area. You really don't see that here, & said Chris Yancey from Pensacola. & # 39; It's not that kind of beach … not along the normal lines I think you might think so it's quite shocking. & # 39;
Father Billy Tharpe said: “There are many children here on the beach, brother. You don't want them to end up in that mess … one of them opens and you have children in the water. & # 39;
