Ecstasy Pills Found in GTA IV


Richard Thornhill, the father of a twelve year old boy, found what appeared to be ecstasy pills inside a preowned copy of Grand Theft Auto IV. The game had been purchased from the retailer Gamestation in Cheltenhem, Gloucestershire.

“When I opened the box up, the cling film wrap fell out. I could not believe it… I have two children and my son plays Xbox all the time. He could easily have opened the box and found them,” Thornhill told Telegraph last Wednesday.

Gamestation responded: “We have rigorous procedures for accepting pre-owned titles and checking them before they are put back on sale. We have launched an immediate investigation and we will work closely with police to find out what happened in this instance. It would be inappropriate to comment further until the police investigation is complete.”
