Class A drugs worth £50,000 found in bushes in Suffolk

An investigation has been started following the discovery of a large quantity of drugs in west Suffolk.

A package was found by a member of the public in undergrowth off Tayfen Road in Bury St Edmunds shortly after 1600 BST on Thursday.

Officers arrived and discovered what they believed to be Class A drugs with a street value of about £50,000.

Det Insp Steve Denham, of Suffolk Police, said the substance would be sent for tests.

"While we analyse the substance and its purity, we would obviously like to know who it belongs to and how it came to end up being in the bushes," he said.

"We're looking to speak with anyone who saw any suspicious activity, people loitering near The Beerhouse public house or any unfamiliar vehicles parked up in the vicinity in the days leading up to Thursday afternoon."
