A New Zealand woman who lost a bag filled with cannabis was arrested when she tried to reclaim it as lost property from the police station. The bag, containing about 20 grams of marijuana separated in tinfoil wraps, a cannabis pipe and a mobile phone, was found at a ferry terminal in Picton, the Marlborough Express reported.
After it was handed over to police, the mobile phone rang and a male caller inquired about the bag. Officers informed him it was at the Picton police station. Patricia Wright was arrested when she turned up to reclaim the bag. She immediately admitted the drugs and cannabis pipe were hers. The 61-year-old received a six- month supervision order and was told to undergo counselling by Judge Peter Hobbs, who said that Wright had a history of drug convictions.
