Dude Loses Drugs at Music Festival then Arrested Because He Wrote his Contact Details on the Bag

Don’t you just hate it when you go to a gig and lose something? You might get it back through lost-and-found, but you might have a better chance if your contact details are somewhere on the item. Kinda like getting your mom to sew a name tag on your underwear before you go off to summer camp.

A dude in Australia thought he was doing a smart thing by putting his contact details on a baggie of MDMA before going to the Maroochydore Music and Visual Arts Festival near Brisbane. Written in Sharpie on the bag was “MDMA. If found called 04XXXXXX.”

Of course, he lost the bag. The good news is that it was found. The bad news it was found by police as they were making a routine canine sweep through the festival grounds.

Unsurprisingly, they had no trouble making an arrest.

A 21-year-old man was charged with possession of dangerous drugs this past Monday (September 4).
