THE BALDING BANDIT SENTENCED FOR STEALING ROGAINE FROM DRUG STORES

Mark Quartiano, known as “Mark the Shark,” was fishing off the coast of Miami on Wednesday when he reeled in a recessed package, covered with barnacles. To his surprise, the catch was a brick, or kilograms of cocaine.

“Lo and behold, it was one of those square grouper,” he jokingly told news station WPLG.

The high-profile fisherman, who has more than 60,000 followers on Instagram, shared a video on Thursday of his catch of the day.

This was not the first time Quartiano has found contraband on the high seas. He also claims that he is on the containers of marijuana, but said that the cocaine was “quite rare.”‘
