CREWE, Va. — Someone lost their cocaine on Tuesday, and the Crewe Police Department is trying to “help.” The department posted on Facebook that they were called to the Super Dollar after narcotics were found. “We are now in possession of a white substance that appears to be cocaine,” they wrote. “If you mistakenly dropped your cocaine today and were at the Super Dollar, please contact us.”
“We would like to talk with you further about your property,” they added.
Apparently multiple people reached out to the department and asked if they would actually be given back their cocaine.
“Let us clarify… NO! We will not give you back your illegal narcotics,” read the Facebook reply. “The narcotics are weighed, photographed and placed into an evidence locker to be destroyed upon the approval of the courts.”
“We distribute lots of things, such as lollipops to our favorite kids, and tickets to lead-footed friends, but we do not re-distribute your drugs. We hope this clarifies our post a bit more.”
