CHERRYVALE, Kan. (AP) — Police in the tiny town of Cherryvale, Kansas, looking to track down the owner of an abandoned gram of crystal meth have taken their case to social media.
A bag with methamphetamine was found Sept. 29 at a convenience store in the southeast Kansas community of about 2,300 people. So Cherryvale police politely posted about it on the department’s Facebook page.

The post reads: “We are very concerned and would like to find the owner so please notify us and describe the packaging and we will see what we can do for you.”cherryvale-screen-grab

 

It’s been shared nearly 1,700 times. But Police Chief Perry Lambert says no one has come forward as the owner of the illegal stimulant — though he says he’s hopeful.
