A SHOCKED dad opened a present from his mum and found a bag of Class A drugs instead of a bottle of aftershave.
Darren Swankie, 31, was delighted when he unwrapped the late Christmas gift and saw a box of his favourite scent.
But when he opened the pack, he discovered a bag full of white powder.
Mum Gail had bought what she thought was Paco Rabanne 1 Million Lucky for £48.99 from a Savers store.
Both she and Darren, of Shildon, Co Durham, are baffled as to how the drugs got into the box.
Education mentor Darren, a dad of one, said: “I was gobsmacked.
It looked legit but when I opened it I thought, ‘There’s something wrong here’.
It could have been given to a teenager with tragic consequences.”
Darren has alerted the discount store and informed Durham Police.
