Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

At this point, I'm used to the occasional empty crack vial or used condom greeting me in the alley when I take out the trash, but I sure wasn't prepared for what Snow White left me this morning on my sidewalk...

A ziplock baggie of cocaine and a pair of Bono style wrap around sunglasses. Fearing that whomever lost such a treasure was most very likely going to be back that way to search for it, I called 911, the police showed up within 5 minutes, and they very happily took the stuff off my hands. It was not an insignificant amount. With an eight ball of coke (abuot 3.5 grams) retailing for about $250, this bag was probably worth close to $10,000. Even the officer was incredulous, and said "you just FOUND this lying there?" Evidently, I harbor no suspicious drug characteristics, but I did have to complete a police report and give a brief statement.

Maybe they can return the stuff to its rightful owner with a pair of handcuffs.

    Police arriving in five minutes?

    Police taking a report?

    Wow. What a difference a snow storm can make!

    That parcel could have also been heroin since it gets a bit more traffic in 'Balmer. Thats quite a bit of dope and hopefully they will find the owner -soon.

    I'm betting that someone was on the run from the law and ditched the said parcel. Hopefully the police can pull a print from the glasses.

    Taking trash out in BH can be quite the adventure. There's a bus stop on the way to our buildings' dumping ground that has enough vials to make it a rather slippery walk.
