She must have been high…
TOULOUSE (FRANCE) (AFP) –
A woman was arrested in France Tuesday after she waltzed into a police station, put three bags of cocaine on the counter and asked officers on duty to test its quality.
It was around 5:00 am in the southwestern city of Toulouse when police officers were confronted with the strange request from a known 45-year-old drug user.
A police source said the woman went to the main police station and placed the bags — two containing cocaine powder and one crack cocaine — on the counter.
Asked why she did so, the woman replied: “so that officers at reception could test it” and that “she wanted to know if it was good quality as she didn’t want people to die of an overdose.”
The woman was taken into custody and a court ordered her to attend a hearing in January.
Perhaps she read Depoetic’s answer, here.
I had no idea the cops were searching for the Holy Grail. 😉
Police raided a village pub searching for a stolen Holy Grail relic but only found a salad bowl.
A team of 12 West Mercia Police officers searched the Crown Inn in Lea, Herefordshire, for the Nanteos Cup, which was once housed in Aberystwyth.
The only item found vaguely resembling the relic was a bowl for serving salad to customers.
Police said they received intelligence that the cup had been seen in the pub so executed a search warrant on Sunday.
Bah. Probably an excuse to grab a pint, while on duty. 😉
