QUEENSLAND, Australia, Nov. 30 (UPI) -- An Australian man handed a jellyfish over to local police after believing it was a breast implant.
The concerned citizen bagged the "circular object" he believed was evidence of a potential homicide before bringing it to Sunshine Coast police.
"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," police said. "The man was concerned it was a prosthetic implant from someone who may have been murdered or drowned."
Officers collected the mysterious object and discovered it was far less sinister than the man initially suspected.
"Investigations revealed what police suspected...the item was indeed a jellyfish!" Police said.
Colin Sparkes, from Surf Life Saving Queensland, told the BBC the creature was likely a blubber jellyfish commonly found near Queensland.
"[The] tentacles have been knocked off by wave action or eaten by fish," he said.
