I doubt the police would do anything, but you could report them stolen if you did not consent to them being taken. Be prepared for the police to tell you that it is a civil matter they won't assist with.

Q: I was hired in MN for a job and have to do a drug test, do I have to drive there for the test if I live in WI?
William Bailey
William Bailey answered on Nov 25, 2020

You would need to ask the employer that is requiring the drug test. I would imagine you could go to a lab closer to where you live and they would accept the results as long as it is from a reputable lab and is an observed test.
