A Florida county sheriff said he hopes to find the “rightful owners” of a whopping 770 pounds of marijuana worth about $2 million dollars — taunting drug dealers in a cheeky Facebook that has gone viral.
“If you happened to have lost or misplaced approximately 770 pounds of high-grade marijuana and would like to have your property returned, please contact our Narcotics Agents and we will be more than happy to reunite you with your lost property!!” Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey joked on social media Wednesday while announcing the major drug bust.
“I mean, trying to identify the rightful owner of the property is the very least we can do, especially since it has a street value of roughly two million dollars!!”
The Sheriff said that the dope had been found in a mini-storage facility in Viera.
“So if the 770 lbs of marijuana belongs to you, all we need you to do is come down to our Criminal Investigative Services building on Gus Hipp Blvd in Rockledge and claim your property with absolutely no strings attached!!” Ivey quipped.
“Once we properly identify you as the rightful owner we will gladly return your property and also make sure that both you and your property are kept in a secure area so that no one can try to rip you off!!”
Ivey also offered the “property” owners an “all expenses paid extensive ‘staycation’” to “reflect for a while on exactly how much your lost property means to you!!”
The cheeky announcement has been shared on Facebook more than 20,000 times and has attracted more than 12,000 comments.
