A startled resident stumbled on three meticulously wrapped bundles containing 10 packages each in Big Pine Keys, officials said.

An additional 25 bundles weighing roughly 70 pounds were also discovered nearby, according to the agency.

Drug packages have been washing up in the area with increasing frequencies in recent months.
