If You Found Marijuana in Your Suitcase at Narita, Let Customs Know

A customs officer at Tokyo’s Narita airport trying to test whether drug-sniffing dogs could find marijuana in a suitcase, forgot which piece of luggage he placed the drugs in and now someone is walking around Tokyo with about 1/3 of a pound of pot in the luggage.  Customs officials say that it is against regulations to test their dogs by picking a random piece of luggage (for this very reason – typically they used a marked suitcase).  They ask that if you find 1/3 of a pound of marijuana in your suitcase to let customs know at Narita.  Which, given my experience with people speaking English in Japan, should be an interesting conversation.
