Airport's 'Huge Drug Bust' Turns Out To Be Cake Ingredients
British Transport Police

This is a specific kind of plot twist! A “huge drugs bust" at Gatwick Airport has turned out to be part of a cake.

Vegan pizza restaurant Purezza was transporting ingredients in a suitcase when a member of staff was stopped by the police. The white powder seemed a bit suspicious. So, after analyzing it a bit further they realized that, although it was divided into blue bags, it was not illegal.

“'Officers were called to Gatwick Airport station at 1.34pm on August 28 after a suitcase was found containing 25 bags of powder," British Transport Police said. “Following a number of inquiries and tests, it was determined these bags of powder were cake ingredients for a vegan bakery. They were soon reunited with the owner, who has promised officers and staff a slice of cake in return."

Later the restaurant, tweeted, “Thanks for going easy on us guys! A slab of cake all round is in order when you're next in Brighton."

People on Twitter had the best response to the "drug bust."

Some are getting the wrong idea.

Others were grateful.

All the puns.

We were all thinking about the dogs.

And, more puns.

Do we get to try the cake?

Others were making vegan jokes.

Is it?

We know they were just doing their jobs.

Their cakes are not drugs, but are still addictive.
