Space Cadet Returns Cocaine Stash To Store
Feb. 2, 2012
Employees at a local retailer found an illegal surprise in a pocket of a pair of returned jeans on Tuesday.
Photos of two possible suspects identified by police are shown above.
Apparently, the person who brought back the Ariat jeans forgot about the vial of cocaine in the pocket.
Helena Police Chief Troy McGee said police received a call from Murdoch’s Ranch & Home Supply on Tuesday morning reporting that a small glass vial of cocaine was located within a plastic bag in the jeans.
The pants had been returned the previous day. The discovery was made when employees were restocking the jeans, McGee said.
Police are tracking who returned the jeans with the narcotic addition.
