Cops in London swung into action to seize a suitcase loaded with 25 bags of 'drugs' but realised it was just cake ingredients for a vegan bakery.
According to reports in CNN, British Transport Police stopped one of the workers of a pizza restaurant and suspected several blue bags to be containing drugs. Assuming it to be the latest drug bust, the powder was tested by police, alongside Home Office officials who confirmed it was just ingredients for a vegan cake.
British Transport Police said, "Officers were called to Gatwick Airport station at 1:34 pm on August 28 after a suitcase was found containing 25 bags of powder. Following a number of inquiries and tests, it was determined these bags of powder were cake ingredients for a vegan bakery."
Following the hilarious incident, police tweeted: "Please label your foods and bring samples of cakes next time you visit'. Responding to the tweet, Purezza restaurant which has stores in Brighton and London wrote: 'Thanks for going easy on us guys! A slab of cake all round is in order when you're next in Brighton'.
