CRYSTAL Meth was found inside Home Office toilets this week and
Police were called to the Home Office after a stash of crystal meth and a crack pipe were found just FOUR days after new Home Secretary Sajid Javid took over.
The highly-addictive drug, also known as blue and ice, and a pipe to smoke it with were discovered by security guards in a disabled loo.
According to The Sunday Mirror, it was the THIRD incident in six months at the Home Office, which is responsible for overseeing the nationwide war on drug abuse.
Scotland Yard decided not to mount a full investigation – with Government officials unable to say why.
The embarrassing revelation came on the same day Mr Javid, who took over after Amber Rudd resigned a fortnight ago, tweeted a picture of himself with a Border Force officer and a sniffer dog called Trigger at Heathrow Airport.
He posted: “We have impressive four-legged friends helping sniff out drugs, cash and illicit goods. Go Trigger!”
Crystal meth, which featured in hit US television drama Breaking Bad, carries severe penalties for its use.
The stash of it was found on May 3 at the Home Office’s Marsham Street HQ in London’s Whitehall, where 5,000 staff are employed.
An insider said: “Everyone in the building is talking about this.
“We’re the lead department in the war against illegal drugs so it’s hugely embarrassing when they’re found under our noses.
“Our job is to break the bad guys. not to feature in an episode of Breaking Bad.”
In December last year crystal meth and a pipe were also found in a different Home Office disabled toilet.
And last month cocaine was discovered elsewhere in the building. Security is tight at the Home Office, which is also responsible for co-ordinating the battle against terrorism.
