This Copy Of Grand Theft Auto V Came With A Baggie Of Meth

by Robert Workman


It’s kind of weird how someone like Trevor from Grand Theft Auto V finds benefits from something like meth, and yet it somehow actually finds it’s way into a real copy of the game.

But that’s exactly what happened to a Florida mom, as she picked up a copy of Grand Theft Auto V for her son, only to find that there was a plastic baggie inside – and it was actually filled with meth.

The mom, Kayla McAllister explained that her son was looking through the game’s manual when he came across the drugs, as the game was installing. Upset over his discovery, she decided to complain to Facebook. "Today i took my son to gamestop in Tallahassee to trade in games and get some new ones. When he opened the booklet inside one of the pre owned games he ( MY ELEVEN YEAR OLD SON!!!!!!!) found this. A baggie of fucking meth! Clearly the game was not properly checked when it was traded in and because of the carelessness i could have lost a child. Thankfully He brought it right to us and said what is this?"

McAllister then contacted the police, who did test the substance and confirmed that, yes, it was meth. The police notes, coming from Kotaku, can be found below:

“Deputy Larry Smith … was dispatched to [redacted] to meet complainant (Kayla McAllister) in reference to possible narcotic found in a game case that was purchase from Game Stop in Tallahassee on 05-07-17. Upon arrival, Ms. McAllister handed over a Wells Fargo envelope with a small zip lock bag with white substance inside of it. At the Gadsden County Sheriff’s Office the white substance was field tested by Deputy Dallas Richardson and witness by Deputy Kevin Faircloth with a return of purple and blue. These colors are positive for narcotic (Methamphetamine). The zip lock bag weight was 6 grams without packaging.”

McAllister then called GameStop, the company she bought the game from, to complain. The manager offered to replace the game, but she refused.

We’re not quite certain what’s more messed up here – the fact that a used copy of Grand Theft Auto V had a plastic bag filled with meth, or the fact that McAllister bought the game for her 11-year old son in the first place. Not exactly kid friendly there, Kayla…

Grand Theft Auto V is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. And, no, it doesn’t come with meth.
