Wilkes-Barre Township police posted about the find on the department’s Facebook page. In a post headlined “FOUND ITEM,” police quipped the drug had been placed in the department’s “lost and found box” and invited the owner to come retrieve it.

The post requested a picture of the crack’s owner holding the drug, along with ID and a “written statement containing your claim to the crack.”
