After discovering some mistakenly dropped coke at a Super Dollar store, Virginia police have put out a Facebook status searching for the owner.

"We are now in possession of a white substance that appears to be cocaine," Crewe Police Department wrote.

"If you mistakenly dropped your cocaine today and were at the Super Dollar, please contact us."

The status attracted a good deal of attention, and the department was later forced to issue a clarification over whether the owner would be reunited with their lost drugs.

"We have been asked "would you really give it back?" Let us clarify... NO!" it added.

"We will not give you back your illegal narcotics. The narcotics are weighed, photographed and placed into a evidence locker to be destroyed upon the approval of the courts.

"We distribute lots of things, such as lollipops to our favorite kids, and tickets to lead footed friends, but we do not re-distribute your drugs. We hope this clarifies our post a bit more."

At the time of writing, no-one has stepped forward to claim ownership.
