Police in Prince George, B.C., are thanking a witness who helped them recover a large amount of drugs and cash.

RCMP say a resident reported finding some "large black cases" buried along a trail in the College Heights neighbourhood of the north-central B.C. city on Monday.

Officers searched the area and found three cases, which contained about $5,000 in cash and over 400 grams of illicit drugs, according to Cpl. Jennifer Cooper.

The discovery was made near the 6800-block of Fairmont Crescent in a green belt that backs onto a residential neighbourhood.

The investigation is ongoing and some details are being withheld to help protect the identity of the person who reported the items, Cooper said.

Police say they are holding onto the drugs and cash for use in future investigations.
