A Florida sheriff has offered to reunite more than 700 pounds of cannabis with its owner.
The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office made the proposal on Facebook, arguing they were just trying to “do the right thing” with $2 million worth of drug.
“If you have lost or lost approximately 770 pounds of high grade marijuana and would like to return your property, please contact our Narcotics Agents and we will be happy to reunite you with your lost property!!” Sheriff Wayne Ivey wrote.
“We all have lost or lost something important at some point in our lives and are always hoped that a good and kind person will find our lost thing and do the right thing by returning it to its rightful owner.
“As we at the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office always strive to do the right thing, our Narcotics Agents are trying to identify the true owner of the approximately 770 lbs of marijuana that was confiscated from a mini-storage facility in Viera.
“I mean, the least we can do is try to identify the rightful owner of the property, especially since it’s valued at almost two million dollars!!”
And Sheriff Ive said: “Once we correctly identify you as the rightful owner we will happily return your property and also ensure that both you and your property are kept in a safe area. Go so that no one can try to snatch you!!”
The lawmaker also offered the owner a “pause” to reflect on “how much your lost assets mean to you”.
The department is known for its humorous use of social media and runs weekly “Wheel of the Runaway” promotions to decide the “Fugitive of the Week”.
