Jogger Finds 55 Pounds of Cocaine on Galveston Beach

The War on Drugs rages on, and every day drug smugglers find new ways of transporting their product to the United States. While jogging on a beach in Galveston, a man discovered 55 pounds of cocaine in the surf. The police speculate that drug runners may have intentionally dumped the cocaine overboard, so that it could later be picked up onshore.

The penalties for drug possession are severe. In Texas, if you are caught with 55 pounds of cocaine, you can be sent to prison for up to 99 years. If you or a loved one is charged with drug possession, it is important to hire competent and experienced counsel to represent you. Call the Law Offices of The Law Office of Matthew D.
