MACEDONIA, Ohio -- Northeast Ohio police hoping to figure out who left a bag of methamphetamine in a hotel room trash can say their department feels horrible for the owner's loss and wants to help.

The tongue-in-cheek message posted Tuesday to the Macedonia police Facebook page asks the owner of the drugs to call or stop by to claim them so officers can, in their words, "make your day." A photograph shows a baggie containing what a detective says is a gram of high-grade crystal methamphetamine worth as much as $160.

The detective at the department about 20 miles southeast of Cleveland says there were numerous empty bags in the hotel trash can. Police haven't identified who rented the room using a gift card.
