The green in color suitcase along with its contents are shown below.  The Sheriff's Office estimates the value of the nearly 15 pounds of contents at nearly $40,000.00.  If this is your suitcase, please bring identification and proof of ownership to the Sheriff's Office and we will take care of you from there.

Recovery of the items were made possible by the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office, COMET Drug Task Force and the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
