People get awfully excited when they find a sealed safe, and even though the odds of finding anything great in the safe are slim the nagging question of what’s inside demands an answer.
Most of the time money is spent on a locksmith only to discover the safe is empty, but sometimes people get lucky and find something valuable...and sometimes they find something horrifying.
Here are six of the strangest things ever found in a locked safe:
1. A Whole Lotta Heroin-
Once upon a time a dumb drug dealer took the idea of "safe keeping" too literally, thinking his stash would be best kept in a locked safe in the trunk of his car.
When he was pulled over for a routine traffic stop, drug dealer Dustin denied knowing anything about the eight bricks of heroin being held by his passenger Crystal.
But the safe key in Dustin's possession gave him away, and the cops opened the safe in his trunk and found 100 bricks of heroin inside, valued at over $50,000. Now Dustin is safely locked behind bars...
2. Child porn and live grenade-
Redditor cakegirl8 thought she was getting a killer deal on a fun, and potentially valuable, mystery when she bought a locked safe on Craigslist for a mere $100, but the contents proved to be most unsettling.
Upon opening the safe she discovered a live grenade hanging from the door, and a bunch of SD cards inside. Ever curious about what she'd bought, cakegirl8 took a peek at those cards and found they were full of child porn.
She quickly turned the entire safe and its contents over to the police, discovering that $100 buys you a strange story to tell and a bunch of disgusting images you can't unsee.
3. A Crying Baby-
When playing hide and go seek it's probably best you don't use a hotel safe as a hiding spot, because if that door accidentally closes somebody might suffocate in there.
A Brooklyn couple staying at a hotel in Niagara Falls discovered their infant had been locked in the room's safe by the baby's older sibling.
A maintenance worker was able to free the child after about twenty minutes, but something tells me those kids won't be playing hide-and-seek again anytime soon!
