An off-duty deputy, fishing off the Florida coast, snagged an illicit catch worth about $10 million.

The Charlotte County deputy found about 50 pounds of uncut cocaine floating in the Gulf of Mexico.

He said he was about 20 miles offshore when he found the package.

The drugs were turned over to federal investigators who said they will try and find out where they came from.

The Charlotte County sheriff said the street value of the uncut cocaine was about $2.5 million, but once the drugs are cut, the price shoots up to at least $10 million.
