Everyone knows there's only one thing to do when you need an answer to a question -- ask Facebook.

That's just what the Lewiston Police did on Tuesday.

Police posted photos of a mystery liquid contained in bottles, which according to witnesses, fell off a yellow dump truck.

WGRZ reports:

Officers were called to Black Nose Spring Road where more than 30 plastic bottles were found along the roadside. Witnesses told police they saw the items fall off of a yellow dump truck that was driving in the area just before 11 a.m.

Concerned that the substance may pose an environmental or other health hazard, police asked the public -- via social media -- if anyone had information regarding the yellow dump truck or what it was carrying.

And there's a good reason people ask Facebook for answers -- according to WGRZ, a few hours after posting the call for help, the vehicle and driver were located:

"...the substance in the bottles was identified as organic soap. According to police, the driver was cited for "having an unsecured load."
