A Darwin woman has asked police to find her stolen marijuana after the handbag she kept it in went missing.
A 44-year-old woman called police on Saturday night to report the theft of her handbag, saying she suspected it had been pinched by a guest at her home.
‘‘She reported that her bag contained all the usual items including some cash - none of which she was too concerned about,’’ watch commander Brendan Lindner said in a statement on Facebook on Sunday.
‘‘What was of particular concern to her, however, was her cannabis that was inside.’’
The woman was very upset about the loss, he said, telling police that her handbag contained two $50 bags of cannabis.
‘‘She was even willing to attend the police station at a later time to make a formal statement about her stolen drugs,’’ watch commander Lindner said.
‘‘The woman’s handbag remains outstanding and she unfortunately has no more drugs at home.’’
He said if residents knew of anyone with cannabis for supply, ‘‘please call police ... and we’ll be only too happy to speak to them’’.
