    A man told officers he was running by the water when he came across a black, square package with the word, “Porsche” written on the outside. 

    He said he thought the package might contain a type of car part, but when he unwrapped it, he saw a white substance and “smelled cocaine,” according to a report. 

    Police said the package was semi-covered by a rubber weatherproof material and cellophane wrapping. 

    The substance tested positive for cocaine, police said. 

    The man who found it cooperated with detectives and filled out a witness statement at the scene, police said.
