Airbnb’s Scottish hosts are horrified after guests order bags of crystal meth from their Prestwick home
The SCOTTISH Airbnb hosts were horrified after accusing guests of ordering bags of ‘crystal meth’ for them.
The Prestwick hosts were left “shaken” after claiming police confirmed the white substance delivered to the holiday home was a “controlled drug”.
A middle-aged couple are said to have ordered the package from the East Ayrshire property during their stay last month (21-26 June), but are said to have left before the package arrives.
Shocking images show two small plastic bags of a white crystalline substance.
Another photo shows a shiny black plastic envelope in which the suspected drug entered.
Other screenshots show a response from Airbnb that is believed to be “investigating” the matter.
In an online post, the host, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: “Well, it’s been confirmed by police to be a controlled drug.
The parcel has arrived
“It was sent to our address for a guest who left before he arrived.
“There is nothing the police can do because he didn’t handle it in any way. I wanted him to be taken off the streets and disposed of properly.”
Visitors had alerted hosts that they were receiving an SD card delivered to the property during their stay.
The pair then checked on Saturday (June 26) but their package still had not arrived.
When the hosts went to clean the property, they were shocked to find white powder and stains on the sofa, as well as a pungent smell in the living room that lurked for weeks afterward.

The owners say a small package arrived in the mail, without thinking about it, they opened it to find little bags filled with white powder that they believed to be crystal meth.
The package was then reported to the police who believe it to be a “controlled drug”.
Speaking today, one of the anonymous owners said: ‘We think it’s crystal meth, we asked an expert friend and the police said it was probably a drug. controlled. “
“The drugs were delivered at lunchtime on Saturday June 26 after their departure.
“The guest came to see us on Wednesday (June 23) saying he had sent an SD card to this address and we let him know that this was generally not allowed.
“Two bags of a white substance were sent to our home, the address and name were typed out rather than written down.
“He said it would be a camera SD card, we opened it with a lot of mail without realizing it.
“The situation scared us, the police aren’t investigating because he didn’t handle the drugs so he just needs to deny it.
“But they wrote his name against it if something similar happened.
“The police didn’t pass the drugs through a lab but did some kind of presumptive test which they called.”
They continued, “There were stains on the sofa where they didn’t use the bedding on the sofa bed.
“He tried to tidy up but it took over a week to get rid of the smell and we’ll have to repaint.
“We also had to find alternative accommodation for the next guest. It was mainly the smell rooted in all the fabrics and upholstery.
“The smell was more than that of the pot, it was chemically heavy and there was white powder left in the living room.”
“I complained to Airbnb who said I can claim the cleaning and they will ‘review’ their account.
“He has since sent a message apologizing for the professional cleaning, so they must have said something to him, but I didn’t respond.”
