Cocaine was discovered in the ceiling of a public bathroom in Mission last week.

According to a Facebook post from Mission RCMP, the detachment received reports last Thursday morning (Nov. 16) that multiple packages of drugs had been found in a public restroom.

Police say a maintenance person opened up a ceiling panel while working and found half a kilogram of cocaine split into multiple packages.

Mission RCMP suspect the drugs were placed in the ceiling by a drug dealer for another dealer to pick up.

In the release, the detachment stressed the dangers of leaving toxic drugs in a place where an unsuspecting member of the public could be unknowingly exposed.

Police have yet to identify the person who put the drugs in the bathroom. Those with information can contact Mission RCMP at 604-826-7161
