Naughty 45th Civil Engineer Squadron

I doubt the packages were intentionally thrown overboard (jetsam) so they must be flotsam. The discoverer cannot simply do whatever she wants with flotsam. If someone can demonstrate they are the original owner then they retain ownership. The 45th Civil Engineer Squadron should have given the original own the opportunity to claim the packages and supply proof of ownership such as a receipt.
