Here’s a lost and found story with a twist.

Police allege a bag of illicit drugs – with an estimated street value of up to $2000 – fell from someone’s pocket while he was on the Geraldton foreshore on Wednesday, in broad daylight and in full view of closed circuit TV cameras.

The bag, containing amphetamines, was picked up by a passerby who dutifully handed it into Geraldton Police Station.

Officers then accessed CCTV footage where they identified a person of interest.

Police said they were confident of making an arrest in due course.
