11-Year-Old Discovers Something Outrageous In Grand Theft Auto V Case
| Last updated
There's very little that can equal the feeling of cracking open the case of a new game.
Whether it's brand new, second hand, borrowed, rented (RIP Blockbusters) there's a surge of emotion that runs through your body as anticipation builds towards you popping the disk in your console.
The games that have created this much adrenaline over the years are those in the Grand Theft Auto series. Following GTA III, Vice City really came into its own, giving players an unreal experience as Tommy Vercetti in the 80s.
And just when we all thought that couldn't be topped, we were thrusted into the 90s as Carl 'CJ' Johnson, who was returning to San Andreas after his mother was murderer. San Andreas really set the bar for all games after then, and few rarely came close.
But, after a lengthy break we eventually had GTA: IV, which was alright, but then GTA V came along and pretty much changed everything. Playing as three separate players was phenomenal, jumping from Franklin's repossession work and gang culture, to Michael's disastrous home life and Trevor's meth pedaling rivalries, before the three all come together, was special.
However, the influence of the game can be rather strong, which isn't great, especially when you consider that crystal meth is a big part of the early stages.
Trevor must have had a big influence on someone, as a kid found a bag of meth trapped inside the case of GTA V which he bought secondhand.
Mum of the 11-year-old took to Facebook to post about the drugs she'd found, disgusted that it could happen to anyone, let alone someone that young.
"Today I took my son to GameStop in Tallahassee to trade in games and get some new ones," she wrote. "When he opened the booklet inside one of the pre-owned games he (MY ELEVEN YEAR OLD SON!!!!!!!) found this. A baggie of fucking meth!
"Clearly the game was not properly checked when it was traded in and because of the carelessness, I could have lost a child.
"Thankfully he brought it right to us and said what is this? My fucking 3-year-old daughter could have gotten a hold of this!
"I've filed a police report and contacted corporate and waiting to hear back. PLEASE CHECK ALL THE PRE OWNED GAMES YOU BUY!!!"
It's understandable that Kayla was worried because it'd be easy for a child to put it in or near their mouth, leading to devastating effects. Usually you might find some cheat codes tucked inside the booklet, but drugs, especially Class A, is another kettle of fish.
Luckily she called the police and filed a report to the the Gadsden County Sheriff's Department.
