Police found these unusual looking coffee granules while searching through a man’s home after he was arrested near Diss.

Officers discovered a small amount of cannabis stored in five jars at the property in Suffolk on Saturday evening.

A search was carried out following the arrest of a man in his late 30s, who was driving whilst unfit through drugs.

He was also found to be in possession of a Class B substance.

Police said the man was stopped just before 8pm. He is currently at Wymondham Police Investigation Centre awaiting an interview.

In a tweet, South Norfolk Police said: “1 male under arrest for unfit through drink/drugs. Search of his home revealed some unusual coffee granules #seized.”

Police did not say where in Suffolk the property was located.
