A customs officer hid a package of the banned substance in a side pocket of a randomly chosen suitcase in order to test airport security.
Sniffer dogs failed to detect the cannabis and the officer could not remember which bag he had put it in.
Anyone finding the package has been asked to contact customs officials.

I doubt they put the cannabis into a passengers bag!!!
In airports when testing security they ussually use "dummy" luggage.
The customs officer conducted the test on a passenger's bag against regulations. Normally a training suitcase is used.

Also, I can see this being used as a defence method in court,
'' your honour i bring forward a very real scenario that occured in Japan, where a drugs officer mistakenly tested his sniffer dogs out by putting drugs into the wrong bag, as is the case with my client.''
