Aussie Festival-Goer Does Police A Solid, Writes Name & Number On Bag Of Drugs

Written by Emmy Mack on September 4, 2017

You really have to ponder the thought process of someone who decides to write their name and contact info on a bag of illegal drugs at a music festival.

Were they just trying to be a funny c*nt? Or did they legitimately think a good samaritan might — out of the kindness of his or her heart — return the baggie to its rightful owner, should it go astray?

Either way, that’s exactly what some doofus at this year’s Maroochy Music & Visual Arts Festival did, along with essentially doing police’s job for them.

Imagine the drug squad’s surprise when, after recovering a Coles zip-lock bag filled with a crushed up crystalline powder, they found it was helpfully labelled with: “[name withheld]’s MDMA, if found call 04 [number withheld]” in black sharpie:

Needless to say, it didn’t take the fuzz long to — uh — crack the case.

As News Corp Australia reports, a 21-year-old Dalby man will appear in the Maroochydore Magistrates Court later this month, charged with drug offences.
