A ten-year-old boy uncovered a stash of illicit drugs while out playing over the Easter weekend in the southern Swedish town of Borås.

According to police the find is described as large:

"The value of the find is in any case worth six figures, I can go that far," said Bo Dahleman at Borås police to local newspaper Borås Tidning.

The boy took the package to his parents who in turn informed the police.

The police, who have praised the boy's actions, proceeded to find further quantities of drugs at the location.

Police were on Sunday unwilling to specify the exact nature of the narcotics.
