Cannabis disguised as play dough

The Australian

Customs officers at Melbourne Airport have intercepted four tubs of cannabis resin disguised as play dough.

The tubs containing 305g of cannabis were found in packages labelled "baby toys" on Tuesday and Wednesday last week.

Customs officers were alerted to the packages when an x-ray image identified anomalies with its contents.

The tubs were found to contain a dark resinous substance that tested positive for cannabis.

A 25-year-old man from Caulfield, in Melbourne's southeast, has been arrested and faces five drugs-related charges.

The man has been bailed to appear in Melbourne Magistrates Court on August 21.
