Police are investigating after $75,000 worth of meth was found in a Rochester gas station this week.

According to ABC 6, an employee at the Holiday gas station on 4th Street Southeast had noticed some footprints on the gas station's toilet.

He decided to investigate. While checking the ceiling, the employee found a garbage bag that was all taped up and called the police, the station says.

Police tell the Post Bulletin that the bag contained nine packages. All together, the contents totaled 725 grams of meth. Thats more than one-and-a-half pounds.

Police say $75,000 is a "conservative estimate" of the drugs' street value.

The paper adds that police are looking through surveillance video to try to figure out who put the drugs there.
