It was a bad day for these growers when a certain police officer decided to go on a high-protein diet as part of a body building regimen. Huh? Here’s why, as reported by web.orange.uk:
“[Leicester police officers] asked their colleague in the back what he had been eating, and after fits of giggles and denials, they realised the cannabis smell was in the air in the street outside,” it said.
The team noticed a strong smell of cannabis as they sucked in the welcome fresh air, and tracked it to a nearby house, reports the Police Federation’s magazine.
“Imagine the surprise on the faces of the occupants of the house further along the road when the officers, following their noses, found a cannabis factory with a crop worth £12,000.”
“It was a good collar and it was all down to this officer and his flatulence,” a police source said.
A lucky collar, more accurately, unless it was your house. In that case, not so lucky. Here’s the source.
