Sargasso arrives with packages of drugs along Tulum beach

Tulum, Q.R. — As the sargasso arrives, so do other objects being brought to shore by the seaweed.

The most recent find of interest to police were two large packages of drugs. The two packages were found among freshly arrived sargasso along the stretch of Santa Fe beach near Tulum.

Wrapped in cinnamon-colored paper, the suspicious packages were reported to Emergency 911 by sunbathers who spotted them even though they blended in.

Federal police arrived and verified that both packages contained just over 4.8 kilos of marijuana.
