Bedworth woman arrested after magic mushrooms seized coming into country

Coventry Editorial 26th Sep, 2023   0

A BEDWORTH woman has been arrested after Border Force intercepted almost 2kg of illegal ‘magic mushrooms’ coming into the country.

The class A mushrooms were intercepted last week and officers from the Warwickshire Police Patrol Investigation Team went out to arrest the suspected recipient of the parcel yesterday evening (Monday, September 25).

The 45-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of importing a controlled drug, and she has since been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

PC Dawid Lach said: “Magic mushrooms are illegal and if you import them, you potentially face the same sanctions as people importing other types of drugs. There are no excuses.

“This case should act as a warning to others looking to import them that there are people looking out for them and police will take action.”
