A Spokane man got some good news and some bad news this weekend from police.

The good news: Ziggy’s employees found the item he apparently lost while shopping at the building supply store Sunday.

The bad news: It was a baggie of methamphetamine, and Ziggy’s called Spokane police.

Christopher C. Wilson, 34, gave employees his name and number after asking about a lost item. That information helped police arrest him after employees checked video footage and saw him dropping the bag by the counter. They found it just minutes before Wilson returned.

“The thoroughness and professionalism of the Ziggy’s store employees, along with the suspect’s as well, made this an easy arrest for the Spokane Police Department,” Officer Kevin King wrote in a news release.

Wilson was booked into Spokane County Jail on one count of possession of a controlled substance.
