A kilo of cocaine in a well-sealed package has washed ashore on the Swedish west coast.

The street value of the drugs are worth around 1 million kronor ($126,000), according to TTELA newspaper.

Police believe the cocaine is part of a larger delivery that someone was forced to dump overboard.

Police in Denmark have reported similar finds on the Danish coast.

Swedish authorities say that additional packages may still be out to sea, and authorities, including the coast guard, are conducting a search on water and land.
