Alabama beachgoers found 31 kilograms of cocaine across a beach in Gulf Shores, police said. Cops estimated the coke is worth over $1 million, but no one has claimed it.

Each kilogram was individually wrapped. Thirty bricks were discovered Monday night, and a 31st was found Tuesday afternoon, local Fox affiliate WALA reported.

Gulf Shores police said cocaine washes up in the city about once a year, but never before in such high volume, according to WALA. The kilos were turned over to U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.

“It’s not even really a case for us,” Gulf Shores police officer Jason Woodruff told WALA. “It’s really a closed case from go for us, I mean, there’s really nobody to prosecute.”

Cops said they stepped up patrols to keep an eye out for more cocaine.

Despite the frequency, Woodruff did admit that is the largest amount of drugs his department has discovered. Residents were evidently “shocked” to learn such a large shipment of cocaine had been found near their homes, and law enforcement has increased patrols on the beach as a result.
