A thief ripped off a man's collection of more than two thousand Ecstasy tablets. (Stock photo for illustration purposes only.) The 46-year-old, who lives near Amsterdam, Netherlands, contacted the police because he's afraid that someone might take some of the pills which he claims could be poisonous. From the Edmonton Sun:
A report in De Volkskrant daily Thursday said the man claimed he was not a drug dealer or user.
"I've tried it before but didn't like it," the report quoted him saying. "My passion for collecting comes from the varied collection of colours, shapes and logos that are printed on the pills."
According to a police statement, the man gathered the pills over a 20 year period and carefully stored them in coin collecting folders.
