Police puzzle: grandmother finds 530 ecstasy pills in Planes 2 jigsaw box

A woman from the village of Niedorp in Noord-Holland province has made a surprise discovery in a long-forgotten jigsaw puzzle box – 530 orange ecstasy pills.

According to local policeman Bas Dirkmaat, the box was delivered to the woman’s home four years ago, but it was not addressed to her, her family or neighbours. After asking around, she put the box in her garage for safe-keeping, where it has remained since then.

She came across the box again while tidying up and set the Planes 2 puzzle aside for her grandchildren. She then discovered that there were more than jigsaw puzzle pieces inside.

Police are now trying to trace the source of the drugs.
