Man Leaves Rucksack Full Of Drugs On Tram

A forgetful man left his rucksack packed full of drugs - and a card with his full name and address on - on a tram. He's really helped the police out on this one, hasn't he?

In a post on Facebook post police from Bury South, Greater Manchester, shared a photo of the haul, writing alongside it: "Police appeal to reunite lost property with its owner. A poor individual has forgotten his rucksack while travelling on the Bury met.


"MCRMetrolink have located the bag and have checked for any ID to reunite the property with its owner and located: 25 tablets, large amount of white powder, small snap bags containing white rocks, snap bags containing white powder and scales.

"Thankfully the owner of the bag was helpful enough to leave his Community Payback card, his name and address."

Unsurprisingly, many people in the comments section were not feeling particularly sympathetic towards the bag's owner and it quickly attracted hundreds of response, most of which were taking the piss out of the fella.

One commented to say: "I'm guessing it wasn't owned by a school kid and he is missing his cookery ingredients."

Another jokingly asked: "That's mine, would you be able to drop it off at my house, please?"

While a third guessed: "That might stay in lost property for a long time."

One hopeful person commented to ask if it was a giveaway competition by police and asked cops to 'please consider' them.

The bag was found just hours ahead of a big weekend of live music Manchester, with Noel Gallagher and Muse playing as well as Parklife taking place.

Chief Superintendent Graeme Openshaw, from GMP's Specialist Operations Branch, who is in charge of overseeing police at Parklife, told the Manchester Evening News: "Our aim is to ensure the weekend is as safe and enjoyable as possible for everyone who is planning to attend Parklife.

"We are very experienced in dealing with high profile events like this and festival-goers can expect to see police officers on the ground in and around the event."
