Community Transit lost and found racks up the unusual

The Community Transit Blog has compiled a list of its most unusual lost and found items.

In a given month, riders leave behind about 650 things, usually cellphones, travel umbrellas, prescription glasses, IDs.

Some of the more unusual finds, though, include a treadmill for mice (insert your own joke here), a set of dentures, a playpen, a portable dance pole, a prosthetic leg, a gas-powered pruner, a backpack with 15 bongs, a bag of marijuana, and a bondage kit (yes, I spelled that correctly).

On the day of the Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl parade (if it’s getting hard to remember these days, that was Feb. 5, 2014), there 50 pairs of gloves left behind by fans packed on the stuffy bus rides home.

Unclaimed marijuana and bicycles are handed over to Snohomish County Sheriff’s deputies. Everything else that’s still unclaimed after 30 days is destroyed or donated.

Just over one-third of lost items are found, reunited with their owners.
