The haul of narcotics, believed to be cannabis, was seized


A driver was been stopped with a huge haul of drugs stuffed inside a Sainsbury's bag for life in Tamworth.

Staffordshire Police revealed the narcotics, believed to be cannabis, were seized inside the well-known supermarket's bag on Friday, February 14.

It was not known if the motorist was arrested but the force's press office has been contacted for more information.

Arresting officers took to Twitter to highlight the 'unusual' find.

In the UK, cannabis is categorised as a class B drug which will result in penalties for those found in possession, dealing or producing the substance.

Police officers can issue a warning or an on-the-spot fine of £90 if you’re found with cannabis.

Being found in possession of class B drugs can result in up to five years in prison, an unlimited fine or both.

Those convicted for supplying or production of class B drugs can face up to 14 years in prison.
