TWEED police have received no calls from the public claiming the 2.3kgs of hash that washed up on Kingscliff beach, despite a humorous Facebook call out.

"Found property: Police are looking for the owner who may have lost a section of capped PVC pipe with interesting contents," the post said.

"Give us a call if you wish to claim this or you know who owns it, Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Tweed Heads Police on 07 5536-0999."

The post, which went live last night, linked back to the My Daily News article which said the hash stash was found in a PVC pipe on Sunday.

The cannabis resin has a minimum estimated street value of $92,000.

"No one's owned up just yet," Tweed-Byron crime coordinator Sergeant Stuart Crawford said.

But there certainly has been some cheeky comments on the Facebook page.

"I'll come and collect it tomorrow. No questions asked," Craig Saunders said.

Another Facebook user, Jane Middleton, requested for it to be sent by airmail to her.

Many Facebook users who shared the story also wished they were walking on the beach and had discovered the booty.

Police believe the canister originated from Australia and are unsure of how long it was out to sea.

The canister will now be forensically tested and the drugs will be destroyed.

If you have any information contact Tweed Police on 07 5536 0999.
