The incident occurred at Super Dollar in the State of Virginia.

HAVE YOU EVER popped out to the local shop, rushed around picking up a few essentials and then on way home realised you had accidentially dropped your cocaine on the floor?

Well, police from the Crewe Police Department are here to help. They have issued an appeal through their Facebook page for someone who did exactly that while on an outing to Super Dollar – a discount grocery store in Kentucky, Virginia and Tennessee.
