Fishy smell leads police to stash of cannabis resin
6:00pm Monday 9th December 2013 in Local News
SOMETHING fishy led police to uncover a massive stash of drugs in Laindon.
Officers were called to Hornsby Square, at the Southfields Business Park, after traders reported “a fishy smell” coming from a unit.
When they gained entry to the lock-up they discovered 3,000 playing- card shaped packets of cannabis resin.
Essex Police have launched an investigation to track down the drug dealers who stashed the hoard.
A business owner close to the site, said he was shocked at the find.
He said: “We saw police at the unit last week.
“They were there most of the day, unloading something.
“We certainly don’t want anything like that going on around here.”
Anyone with information can call DI Henderson on 101.
