PETERS TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — Leaving a bag behind at the grocery store might not normally be a big deal unless the bag contains marijuana and hallucinogenic mushrooms.

And that’s exactly what Peters Township Police Chief Harry Freucht says was inside a black bag found at the Giant Eagle.

A customer found the bag and turned it over the folks at the store. The store called police.

And police say 31-year-old Joseph Moody called the store to see if anyone had found a black bag. When he was told to go to police, he did and was taken into custody.

“I’d say he’s pretty stupid,” said one shopper. “I think he’s pretty stupid.”

“That’s pretty unbelievable that he would do that,” added another shopper.

“He’s probably pretty desperate,” a woman said.

He’s being held on a parole violation. Charges have yet to be filed over the bag of drugs.
