MOBRIDGE, S.D. (AP) - The discovery of a bag of methamphetamine at a ShopKo store in Mobridge prompted an unusual tactic by police.

Capt. Al Bohle tells the American News (https://bit.ly/1G2KMCf ) a store employee found the drugs Tuesday. He says the amount isn’t being disclosed, but it’s more than what a single person would use.

Bohle put a post on Facebook encouraging the owner to claim the drugs. It reads: “The MPD is very concerned and would like to find the owner of the methamphetamine. If you are missing methamphetamine and were in a Mobridge business on Tuesday, May 26, please notify the MPD and describe the packaging and we will see what we can do for you.”

Several people who commented on the post found it humorous. Bohle says “it’s funny, but serious.”
