Maitland police were surprised last Wednesday when 46-year-old man allegedly brought a small bag of the illegal drug, methamphetamine (commonly known as ice) into the police station and threw it on the floor.
It is alleged the man told police that he had bought the drug to use but thought it was “bad” so he decided to hand it in to the police.
Police took possession of the drugs and the man will now be attending Maitland Local Court.
