That's when, according to Chief Dan Mauel, Joel Mullin-Romo, 31, arrived at the station to claim his lost backpack.
"Most people won't show up and ask for it back if they know it has contraband in there, but this guy decided he wanted to get his meth back," Mauel told WBAY.
Mullin-Romo is charged with meth possession. At the time of his arrest, he was on probation for another crime, so he may also face other legal issues.
