A 20-foot boat with nobody onboard, or even in sight, washed up recently on a Fort Lauderdale beach — containing and surrounded by at least 11 bales of marijuana.

Each bale is worth about $10,000, according to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection service.

Wads of pot washing up onshore is something of a trend these days in Fort Lauderdale, where last year, officials said sightings of “square grouper” were being reported at a record pace. In one month alone, according to the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel, 400 pounds of weed washed up in 75 packages that hit the sand in Jupiter, Florida; another 48 pounds was found near Vero Beach; a boat showed up unattended in Flagler carrying 150 pounds; and another 15 pounds landed in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea.
