Auckland (dpa) - In New Zealand, more than a dozen packets of cocaine have been flushed to the beach. The market worth over 1.8 million euros has been discovered at Bethells Beach, a popular beach near Auckland. The drug was hidden in 19 packets that were about the size of a videocassette. It is believed that smugglers' packs were purposely dumped into the water to land the drug, but then they took another route through the current.
