Police say 'could have been disastrous' after seizing 'Dairy Milk'

Cannabis chocolate bars made to look like Cadbury Dairy Milk were seized by police during a drugs raid. Police said they "could easily be mistaken for normal bars of chocolate" but actually "contained quantities of an illegal drug".

Alongside 50 bars of chocolate, officers also found bags of cannabis in an empty tin of Roses chocolate and burner phones at the house in Rossington, South Yorkshire. A knuckle duster and over £5,000 in cash were also recovered in Tuesday's raid.

A 28-year-old man, a 59-year-old woman and a 18-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled Class B drug with intent to supply. They have all since been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

Sergeant Chris Rogers says the "consequences could have been disastrous" if a child had eaten the chocolate. He said: "We were able to execute a warrant under Section 23 of the Misuse of Drugs Act thanks to vital intelligence received concerning activities happening at a property in the Rossington area.

"Inside, we found significant amounts of drugs which have since been destroyed as well as cash and phones which strongly suggest that drug deals were taking place from inside the property. The chocolate bars we recovered could easily be mistaken for normal bars of chocolate when in fact they contained quantities of an illegal drug in the form of cannabis.

"If these were to end up in the hands of a child, the consequences could have been disastrous and we are pleased we have been able to take these out of circulation."
