A Brampton boy bought a $5 toy at Target that had a bag of drugs worth about $800 hidden inside the box.
The kindergarten-age boy went with his father to purchase the toy – an Angry Birds Telepod game -- at a Target in Bramalea on Feb. 11. After he had trouble opening the package, he asked his mom for help.
“My son came down eager to open his new toy, “ Monica Milewska told CP24. “My son called me because he was unable to get the Angry Bird figures from the other end of the box. I came, grabbed the box and slit the tape from the other side. I went to hand him everything and noticed something unusual on the couch. Upon further inspection it looked like marijuana.”
“The police suggested it was about 85 grams,” she said. At a street value of $10 per gram, the package would be valued at about $850. The toy cost $5.41 with tax.
Sgt. Brian Hannah at 21 Division confirmed they executed a search warrant at the store in a bid to see if there were more toy packages that contained drugs, however no narcotics were found.
Molly Snyder, a spokesperson for Target Canada, said the company "promptly replaced the item when this was brought to their attention by the guest."
“I guess Target lived up to their slogan, ‘expect more, pay less’.”
I bet it was a quarter-pound and she kept some, or the cops did. 85 grams is an awfully odd amount.
