LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) — It was Grand Theft Auto come to life: When an 11-year-old bought a video game Wednesday in Lake Charles, Louisiana, he opened the plastic case to find a bag of drugs.

KPLC-TV (http://bit.ly/2cll6Yp) reports that the boy’s father returned to the store and called police. Det. Rebecca Reed with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office confirmed the substance was methamphetamine.

Joey Mooring is director of public relations for GameStop. Mooring told the TV station that the Grapevine-based company checks used games for quality when customers trade them in. He also says games are checked again before being shipped to another store. The Lake Charles store manager says employees there typically don’t examine games received from elsewhere in the company.

Reed says GameStop told police it couldn’t track the game’s origin.
