Police issue warning over cannabis sweets

Police are warning that children and young people could be targeted to buy packets of sweets suspected to contain cannabis.

Counterfeit packets of sweets packaged to look like Nerd ropes but which state they contain cannabis and a high amount of THC have been found circulating in Norfolk.

Our Safer Schools Team have made schools in Norfolk aware after bags of the sweets were being sold for £12.

Sgt Daniel Edwards said: “Although they initially look like normal ‘Nerds’ sweets we believe they are likely to contain cannabis, which is listed as an ingredient. We are currently having the sweets forensically tested for confirmation but would like the public to be aware and vigilant. We know that they are being offered to children in Norfolk, particularly in the King’s Lynn and Breckland areas.”

Anyone with information should contact Sgt Daniel Edwards on 101.

  • A 21-year-old woman was arrested for possession with intent to supply Class B Cannabis on the A149 Snettisham Road on Sat 4 July 2020.

The woman was stopped by police in a car at around 7.30pm. Following a search of the vehicle, the woman was arrested for possession with intent to supply Class B Cannabis. She was subsequently interviewed at King’s Lynn Police Investigation Centre where she was released under investigation pending further enquiries.
