A RUCKSACK WAS left behind on a Manchester tram this week, helpfully containing the owner’s name and address in it. 

However, there was also a quantity of drugs found in the rucksack.

A large amount of white powder, 25 tablets, small snap bags containing white rocks, snap bags containing white powder and scales were all found in the bag after staff from the Manchester Metrolink spotted it unattended.

Poking fun at the incident on Facebook, Greater Manchester Police Trafford North said: “Police appeal to reunite lost property with its owner. A poor individual has forgotten his rucksack while travelling on the tram on the Bury line. 

[Manchester Metrolink] have located the bag and have checked for any identification inside to reunite the property with its owner… thankfully the owner of the bag was helpful enough to leave his Community Payback card, his name and address.

The Facebook account for the police closed with some hashtags: “#thoughtfuldealer #dealornodeal #nodeal #honeyiforgotmydrugs.”
