Bulloch County child given Lego box full of meth

Crime & Safety

STATESBORO, Ga. (WSAV) – A child was given a box of Lego, but instead of finding toy parts, meth was found inside, Bulloch County authorities say.

According to the sheriff’s office, back in late February deputies responded to a call about recovered contraband.

Sure enough, inside a box of Lego purchased at a consignment shop in South Carolina was almost three pounds of methamphetamine.

The box was turned over to investigators who contacted the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) for assistance.

The agency believes the package may have been purchased as a part of a storage auction and it eventually ended up at the consignment shop without anyone’s knowledge.

It’s unclear what shop the box was purchased from.

No charges have been made in the case.
