Someone generously donated a bunch of pot to a clothing store for kids

This is why you check your pockets.

Once Upon a Child in Maplewood got a very special and unexpected delivery Friday.

According the Maplewood Police Department, someone donated a bunch of clothes and a pocketful of pot.

To be clear, Once Upon a Child accepts gently used children's clothes and toys – not drugs. As the Pioneer Press explains, people often drop off their stuff for staff members to evaluate. Then when the customer returns, the store will pay for what it wants.

That's what happened this time around, except the customer never came back for the money or 111 grams of perfectly divided up marijuana.

"Please come to the PD so we can reunite you!" the police department said to the mystery donor in a Facebook post. "We know you spent a lot of time dividing them into these perfectly measured baggies & must be missing them."

According to the paper, there's about $1,100 worth of pot there.

"Sucks to be you," the police department tweeted.
