Palm Beach, FL (WPBF/CNN) - A boat full of marijuana washed ashore Wednesday morning in Palm Beach, Florida.

Firefighters on a passing fire truck first spotted the boat and called police.

Authorities found the drugs wrapped in 80 to 100 plastic bricks.

The street value is estimated at up to $2 million.

Authorities arrested a man about a mile from where the boat was found.

He claims he has nothing to do with the boat, and was walking the beach after a spat with his wife.

Homeland Security officials say the man has an expired visa and has been on their radar for a while.
