UK: Police seize ‘funny-looking’ plants from garden plot

Police have seized 15 “funny looking” plants that turned out to be cannabis.

Officers spotted the potted plants on a plot in Duke Street, Wisbech, Cambridgeshire.

Police said inquiries into the matter would continue.

Although it is not an offence to supply or possess cannabis seeds, germinating or cultivating the plants in the UK is illegal.

‘Good effort’

Posting on Facebook, external, Cambridgeshire Police said: “The Neighbourhood Policing Team came across a lovely green space this morning.

“The plot was set out well, and there were items growing. However, upon closer inspection, we noticed that it was a funny looking plant that we have seen somewhere before.

“It was once quoted by Alan Titchmarsh: ‘Gardening is, apart from having children, the most rewarding thing in life.’

“Good effort, but unfortunately for this unknown gardener, it won’t be as rewarding as your 15 cannabis plants now sit in our drugs property.”
