It's a crime solved ... by a fart! When a policeman kept on farting in a police car, his colleagues were forced to roll down the window to escape the smell. But instead of fresh air, the waft of marijuana drifted in.
Metro has the story:
‘All three officers’ suspicions were raised and they left the car to get some fresh air and find the cause of the cannabis smell.
‘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.’
Seven people at the property in Leicester were arrested.
Oh, and the cop who kept on farting? Metro explains:
The officer with the wind problem had been on a high-protein diet after taking up body building.
