Police Hope Perps Will Fall For This ‘Lost And Found’ Meth Ad

HuffPost, March 3, 2016

Did you recently lose a bag of meth in Ohio? Then cops want to “make your day.”

Macedonia Police Department posted this tongue-in-cheek message to Facebook, which they hope may lure in the perps:

LOST!!!
To the person or person(s) who left all his/her small baggies in the garbage can at a certain Highland Road hotel. In your haste to throw them away, you also tossed your baggy of Crystal Meth!! We are sure this was done as an accident and the PD feels horrible for your loss. Please contact us, or better yet, come in and see us. We all know the emptiness inside when we lose something so valuable. We also know the feeling of relief when that lost item is found..Come on in and let us make your day!!

“We all know the emptiness inside when we lose something so valuable,” it says. “We also know the feeling of relief when that lost item is found.. Come on in and let us make your day!!”

The message has gone viral since police posted it on Tuesday. Some commenters question whether police actually expect the drugs’ owners to come forward.

Others say that if they are stupid enough to leave drugs inside a hotel’s trash can, then they may be equally as idiotic in falling for the ad. No one has yet come forward to claim the bag.
