The legend had been just that, a legend, until now.
A Michigan police department confirmed the legend is true when they seized the heralded "Ancient Sword of the Meth King" when a routine traffic stop uncovered a treasure trove of firearms, ammunition, weapons and methamphetamine.
The Bath Township Police Department posted a photo to Facebook of the mythical blade with the caption, "In the early morning of Jan 27, Officers conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle. A subsequent search located a very odd combination of illegally possessed weapons as well as methamphetamine. #ObviouslyAHiPoint #LordOfTheRingsMeetsJohnWick #AncientSwordOfTheMethKing"
Apparently the sword is from a Japanese anime called "Bleach."
