A massive ‘drug bust’ has left the police and authorities rather red faced as seized narcotic in question turned out to be ‘cake mix’. The bizarre incident occurred in London.
the employees of Purezza, a pizza restaurant were carrying the ingredients in a suitcase when he was stopped by British Transport Police. When the officer checked the suitcase he found many blue bags with full of white powder. He mistook it to narcotic drug. After checking it in the labs it turned to be just ingredients of a vegan cake.
