"We would hate to see you lose your job..." snarked police on Facebook.

Cops in the Wilkes-Barre Township of Pennsylvania seemed quite unsure of what to do with a bag of crack-cocaine they found in an abandoned car, parked in a lot outside of Target. Police have now placed the bag of drugs, valued at around $1,600, in the lost and found.

“The Wilkes-Barre Township Police is seeking to reunite the crack cocaine and the person that lost it in the Commons parking lot. We would hate to see you lose your job ... If you would like to retrieve the substantial amount of product from our lost and found box, please stop by 150 Watson Street in Wilkes-Barre Township, Pennsylvania with a picture of you holding the recovered items, identification and a written statement containing your claim to the crack," reads a sarcastic post on the local police organization's Facebook page.

"The above photo was borrowed from a website. We need the owner to describe it in detail," added the department in the comments.

The post did not make clear the process by which the drugs were found, nor does it seem likely they expect anyone to come forward and claim the drugs.
