TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A mother is shaken after her son discovered meth in the case of a game purchased from a Tallahassee GameStop.

According to a report from the Gadsden County Sheriff's Office, Kayla McAlliser's son found the bag of meth after they purchased the game on Sunday from the GameStop on West Tennessee Street.

When they got home with the game, she told police that her son tried to load the game, which was taking a long time.

While it was loading, her son was looking through the inner sleeve of the game and found a zip lock baggie with a white substance inside. The report says her son told her about the baggie, but assumed that it was part of the normal game packaging and threw it in the trash.

GSCO said that before it got thrown away, however, McAllister's boyfriend noticed that what was inside the baggie was likely drugs instead of normal packaging.

At that point, McAllister contacted GSCO.

When she arrived to the Sheriff's Office she handed over the baggie in an envelope. Deputies said that the substance tested positive for meth.

McAllister hasn't shared exactly what her next steps will be, but for now she says that she is focused on spreading awareness on this issue.
