QUEENSLAND, Australia - A man with a jellyfish walked into a police station.

It might sound like the start of a joke, but it's actually the beginning of an unlikely story that recently played out in Queensland, Australia.

According to a statement from local police, officers were "all hands on deck" when an unidentified man walked into Maroochydore police station on Queensland's Sunshine Coast last week.

He was carrying a "bagged and tagged item" that he told police could be a breast implant, which he assumed may have been evidence of a homicide or drowning.

As it turned out, police confirmed that the mystery item was nothing more than a dead jellyfish.

"Investigations revealed what police suspected!" the statement said.

This may be one crime drama that was over before it ever really began.
