A boy aged four years opened a second-hand Xbox game his dad bought him from Blockbuster only to find a bag of Cannabis.
Little Riley Brown was excited when father Andy gave him a copy of Fight Night Round 4. Which he really shouldn’t be playing in the first place.
But he was puzzled by the 2ins by 3ins plastic bag stashed behind the instructions – and the substance in it.
Dad-of-three Andy, 30, said: “He’d only been playing the game ten minutes when he came down with the bag in his hand and asked, ‘Daddy, what’s this?’
“I checked and realised. I was horrified and took it off him straight away.
“But what if he’d thought it was sweets, and started munching away? It doesn’t bear thinking about.”
Estate agent Andy, who lives in Littlehampton, West Sussex, with wife Leila, 30, and their daughters Evie, four, and Lauren, 11, said the bag contained a small amount of cannabis and tobacco – and must have been put in by the former owner who traded it to the store.
The dad, who still has the bag, complained to Littlehampton’s Blockbuster where he bought the game. He said: “They didn’t seem too concerned and said they’d credit a free rental to my account. But this isn’t a matter of a scratched CD or wrong disc, it’s serious.
“They should check all the boxes before they sell them.” Blockbuster is investigating.
