In other bizarre news, the Seattle Police Department says they arrested a male teen outside of CenturyLink Field on Sunday after he asked authorities to help him locate his briefcase. Ordinarily, a missing bag wouldn't warrant an arrest, but this one happened to be filled with cocaine and other illegal drugs.
Officer Doug Jorgenson was working a nearby traffic post just after the Seahawks kicked off against the San Francisco 49ers when an unidentified man approached him with the briefcase, according to Fox. The man said he had been walking his dog in the area when a second man asked to pet his dog. He then claimed the stranger walked off and left the briefcase behind.
According to the full reports, the officer on duty opened the bag in an effort to find out who it belonged to and discovered 154 grams of cocaine. The briefcase also contained 50 diazepam pills, some marijuana, and a cell phone and ID, according to reports.
Not knowing that the briefcase had already been retrieved only a few minutes earlier, a 19-year-old male who remains unnamed approached the officer outside of CenturyLink and inquired about his missing possession. Authorities claim the teen asked them to track down the briefcase because “it contained some important paperwork and he really needed it back." Unfortunately for him, the teen never got his missing briefcase back. Instead, he was arrested and booked into King County Jail in Seattle for possession of narcotics with intent to distribute. In Seattle, the charges and potential sentence for possession with intent is up to 10 years of incarceration or a $25,000 fine.
