Florida Man Finds Unlocked Safe in Front Yard With $7K Worth of Meth Inside

A Port Charlotte man woke up to discover a black bag with an unlocked safe inside it.

What could be in this safe that magically appeared on the man's lawn as if it were a gift from the heavens?

Money? Gold? Jewels? A treasure map?

Nope. It was drugs. A shitload of drugs.

Because, Florida.

According to a Charlotte County Sheriff's Office report, the man told police he found the black bag Wednesday morning right in front of his house on the 23000 block of Midway Boulevard.

The man took the bag, looked inside, and found a small Sentry safe.

The safe was unlocked, the report says. So the man opened it.

And, instead of finding some leprechaun gold, he found two plastic bags of meth.

According to Charlotte County Sheriff's deputies, one of the bags had 88 grams of crystal meth, while the other contained 57 grams.

The street value of the drugs is said to be between $5,000 and $7,000, according to police.

Police are asking anyone with information on the safe to call the CCSO Narcotics Unit at 941-575-2157 or Crime Stoppers at 800-780-TIPS (8477).
