Lincoln police arrest man who claimed his lost drug bag
Lincoln police have arrested the man who came to claim a lost backpack containing drugs and paraphernalia.
A photo of the bag that was found at the end of someone’s driveway was posted on the Lincoln Police Department’s Facebook page on Wednesday. It looks like David Adams may not have seen the original message on the blue and silver backpack. Maybe someone told him the police had it and he just hoped they hadn’t looked inside the bag. If he had read the original “lost and found” message on the department’s page, he would have seen that it clearly stated that the backpack contained heroin and drug paraphernalia and that the police would love to discuss with the owner.
In a separate post on the department’s Facebook page, Lincoln police said Adams stopped by their offices on April 7 to claim the backpack. Officials say he allegedly admitted all the items in the bag were his. At this point, David Adams has been arrested and charged with unlawful possession of Schedule W drugs. He is due to make his first court appearance in June.
