Oliver Edwards, 30, found the drugs while leafing through an instruction manual
Cops launched an investigation after the dad-of-three found the bag of white powder – thought to be MDMA – as he leafed through the instruction manual.
Sign manufacturer Oliver, from Poulton-le-Flyde, Lancashire, said: “I was just horrified.
“If this had fallen on to the floor and my youngest had mistaken it for sweets, it could have been fatal.
“It looked a bit like lemon sherbet powder. I like to think my youngest wouldn’t have done anything with it but you never you. It’s very worrying.
“I phoned GAME’s customer service. I told the bloke on the phone and he laughed at me.
“He said come and swap it for a game without the drugs in. I think I put the phone down on him.
“I was really angry with their reaction to it. They didn’t seem that bothered.”
Oliver picked up the game after taking his sons to the store in Preston on December 27 to spend Christmas vouchers.
