Fareham police called to 'smelly' package at Royal Mail office discover cannabis wrapped in a sock

POLICE were called to a Royal Mail sorting office in Fareham after a suspicious smell was detected coming from a package – revealing a brick of cannabis that had been ordered online.

Officers were called to the mail depot on Thursday afternoon after postal workers were concerned about a ‘particularly smelly’ delivery.

A brick of cannabis wrapped in a sock was uncovered by officers.

The package was addressed to a Fareham property, and the intended recipient was ‘spoken to and given words of advice’, according to a spokesman from Hampshire Constabulary.

He added that officers believe the package was ordered online as the label was prepaid and printed for Royal Mail Click and Drop.

He said: ‘When packages are flagged by Royal Mail or UKBA as suspicious, the package can be opened to ensure illegal or illicit items are recovered and appropriately disposed of.

‘Packages without suspicion or intercepted based on Intelligence, can only be opened under a RIPA (Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act) authority or by court-issued warrant.’
