The drug was actually Tagada strawberry powder

The good deal, indeed. On Wednesday March 17, the Paris Police Prefecture announced on its Twitter account that it had reached out to Saint-Ouen, in Seine-Saint-Denis, on ” a narcotic product packaging workshop (MDMA, ecstasy) “ and seized for a million euros of merchandise. To welcome the discovery, the prefecture accompanied this announcement with the hashtag #belleaffaire. They were actually… Tagada strawberries.

The tweet, which congratulated the transport police on this feat of arms, was accompanied by two photos showing pink powder and kinds of small pills of the same color packaged in sachets. The Paris Police Prefecture claimed that this traffic MDMA (for 3,4-methylenedioxy-N-methylamphetamine), a designer drug, fueled clandestine parties ”.

But there was an error on the goods: the toxicological analyzes carried out Thursday evening concluded “That the powder seized in the apartment was a ‘neutral powder’, not falling under narcotic products or poisonous substance”, Bobigny prosecutor’s office told Agence France-Presse. Instead of narcotics, it was in fact powder of “Crushed Tagada strawberries”, therefore specified a source close to the investigation. It remains to be seen what she was doing there.
