La Crosse police recovered about $10,000 worth of methamphetamine Monday after someone reported finding the drugs on a bridge.

According to a police report, a 53-year-old woman was walking across the Cass Street bridge Christmas morning when she noticed a dark red cloth bag. Inside were seven gem bags of a white substance and one bag with leafy green contents.

The woman turned the bag over to police who found the seven bags contained a little more than 100 grams of meth. The other bag contained 3.2 grams of an undetermined substance.

No one has claimed ownership of the drugs.
