Narcotics, pipe found in lost wallet at eastside Goodwill

Narcotics and a pipe were found in a wallet left at the eastside Goodwill on Wednesday, Bloomington Police Department Lt. John Kovach said.

Police went to Goodwill on College Mall Road around 12:30 p.m., Kovach said. The assistant manager told police that employees found the wallet in the furniture department.

Employees opened it to look for I.D. but found a glass smoking device, a crystal-like substance, a key, paperwork and $36 cash.

Police took the wallet and destroyed the narcotics. They did not test the substance.

The owner of the wallet later returned to Goodwill buthas to pick up the wallet from BPD.

Police have to hold the wallet for 31 days by law, Kovach said. If the owner does not pick it up within that time, police will destroy it.
