A fisherman in the Marshall Islands hauled in a very unexpected catch - 48 kilos of cocaine, worth about $4 million.
As the reported, the angler was about 307 miles from the Marshall Islands capital of Majuro when he found the cocaine in professionally wrapped plastic bags, which authorities believed had broken free from a larger bundle.

"We're pretty sure we got all of it," deputy police commissioner Robson Almen said.
Authorities had to call in help from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency because the small island nation doesn't have the capacity to test the bundles and confirm that it is cocaine. As the Japan Times noted, the Marshall Islands are situated on a major drug route from South America to Asia, and authorities there have found bundles of cocaine and drug boats wash up on shores over the last decade.
