A young cannabis user in Nice thought he had found a safe place to stash five kilograms of the drug - reportedly to keep it safe for his dealer - by hiding it inside his sister's teddy bear.

Following a tip-off, police arrived at the 17-year old's home to search for the drug. The unlikely weight of the offending bear made them suspicious. On opening it up, they discovered the cache.

Local newspaper Nice Matin reported it took a matter of hours for police to track down the drug dealer involved. He has already been taken into custody.

The 17-year old is reported to have admitted hiding the drug in exchange for some to use himself and will face charges at a later date.
