This is probably not what Taylor Swift saw when she scanned the horizon at Bethells Beach in New Zealand in the opening of her music video, "Out of the Woods," a few years ago.
Update 5:44 a.m .EDT Aug. 9: New Zealand police arrested two British men Friday in connection with the 19 packages of cocaine that washed up on a beach in Auckland, The New Zealand Herald reported.
Police arrested a 60-year-old man at an apartment complex in central Auckland, the newspaper reported. A 49-year-old man was detained at an airport, "trying to flee the country," police said. The men have not been identified publicly, the Herald reported.
Original report: The packages were wrapped tightly in plastic and were about the size of a VHS tape, police told the newspaper.
A caller alerted police about the packages Wednesday evening, CNN reported.
"Police with the assistance of New Zealand Customs have conducted a thorough search of the beach and surrounding areas in an effort to locate any further packages," Waitemala police Inspector Det. Colin Parmenter told 1 News.
