Cops Find $1,600 Worth of Crack Cocaine in Parking Lot, Put It in ‘Lost and Found' Box

Police put the crack in the lost and found box themselves and invited the owner to come retrieve it

Police in northeastern Pennsylvania say they've put about $1,600 worth of crack cocaine in their "lost and found box" in hopes of reuniting the drug with its rightful owner. 

Local police posted on Facebook that the copious amount of crack was found in the parking lot of a shopping center outside Wilkes-Barre. 

In a post headlined "FOUND ITEM," police said anyone who would like to retrieve "the substantial amount of product from our lost and found box" was invited to come to headquarters. 

The owner should bring a picture of him or her holding the drugs, along with ID and a "written statement containing your claim to the crack," the post said. 

"We would hate to see you lose your job ... or even worse because you accidentally dropped the drugs in a parking lot where a kid could have found it," the post said.
