An observant lifeguard noticed a package washing ashore on the beach but had to call police when he got closer to the item.
Police were called to Gulf Beach Access Road #2 around 1:45 p.m. Sunday afternoon.
The lifeguard told police he noticed a bundle floating in the water and once officers examined the package, they say there were narcotics inside the box.
Officers told KRIS 6 News they believed the packaged contained marijuana.
Officers added the package would be destroyed.
