UPDATE: The department has removed the post from its Facebook page
"When a post takes off like that it can become a bit of a distraction. We find ourselves having to spend too much time moderating offensive comments and things of that nature," said Hartselle Police Chief Justin Barley.
The Hartselle Police Department maybe wants crime suspects to think it has a different kind of lost and found box.
The department took to its Facebook page Sunday night to let a “young lady in the red Honda” know that officers had picked up the methamphetamine she allegedly dropped at a gas station.
They offer her a chance to come pick it up from their “safe hands,” and wish her a good night’s sleep.
