Hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of methamphetamine was handed over to Wairarapa Police last year after being found on the side of the road.

Wairarapa Police are looking for the owners of two bags of methamphetamine, one found in Featherston last August and the other in Carterton in December.

Someone would probably be missing them, Wairarapa Police Area Commander Scott Miller said.

“If it’s yours, simply come down to the Masterton Police Station to collect it.”

“We may need to ask you some questions first though…”

Miller said those who brought the bags in did the right thing.

He said one of them didn’t really know what the contents were and thought, “this doesn’t look right”, and brought it into the police station.

The other one thought, “oh that might be drugs”.

He said the bags were being investigated and they hoped to get results soon

“Our fingerprint team are working to be able to let you know if it’s yours, in case you don’t see this story, but you may want to pre-empt this investigation and come and see us.”

In August, about 40g worth of methamphetamine was found on the side of a footpath in Featherston.

“It looked like someone had opened the door and it had fallen out of a car and they didn’t realise it,” Miller said.

The bag found in Carterton contained about 300g of methamphetamine worth $180,000, and scales.

“That’s like someone losing $180,000 cash – they wouldn’t be happy,” Miller said.
