Girl, 15, arrested over drugs found in pillowcase

A 15-year-old girl from London was arrested after drugs were found hidden in a pillowcase at a parcel depot.

The 1.8kg package, sent from Pakistan, was intercepted by UK Border Agency officers at the distribution centre near Coventry Airport.

The teenager was among four people arrested over the haul, destined for an address in Croydon, south London.

The girl, a woman, 53, and 42-year-old man were bailed until June. A man, 34, was released without charge.

Police said the pillowcase, which had been used instead of an envelope, also contained items of clothing.
