A HUGE haul of cannabis with a a street value of several thousands of pounds has been left at an Oxfam shop.
The anonymous donation was forwarded on to the charity’s depot and staff there alerted police.
Lorraine Needham-Brinley, production manager at the depot, said: “Staff were suspicious because of a very pungent smell and when they opened this bag they found a big stash of cannabis wrapped in a large bath sheet.
“The volunteers at the shop who received it probably smelled it and just decided to send it straight on without opening it.”
Staff put the haul in Ms Needham-Brinley’s office until police arrived but the smell left her reeling.
“It gave me such a bad headache I had to seal it up,” she added.
The Oxfam Wastesaver depot in Huddersfield, West Yorks, sorts clothing donated to all Oxfam shops across the country.
A police spokesman said the drugs had been seized and destroyed.
