Officers at Maroochydore Station were all hands on deck when, much to their initial alarm, a concerned citizen attended the counter to report a possible homicide.
The member of the public presented police with a bagged and tagged circular object he had located that day.
Officers seized the item at the request of the man and provided him with a receipt.
The man was concerned it was a prosthetic implant from someone who may have been murdered or drowned.
Investigations revealed what police suspected… the item was indeed a jellyfish!
Maroochydore Station is located in Queensland, Australia.
