Richard Thornhill purchased two used copies of GTA from Gamestop for his children on Sunday, and got a little more than he was expecting. Upon opening and inspecting one of the games, a little packet fell out containing what is believed to be 4 ecstasy tablets.
He then did exactly what I wouldn’t; He promptly removed the recreational narcotics to the local police station. While everyone is now safe and happy, Thornhill laments :
"I have two children and my son plays Xbox all the time. He could easily have opened the box and found them. I dread to think what the consequences would have been if he had. He is only 12. He could have died."
Of course he’s equal parts responsible parent and jackass – what the hell are you doing buying GTA for children? That 18 age restriction is there for a reason.
