Pooting PC declared hero in drugs haul
From the Metro 13/06/13:
A cannabis factory was sniffed out by police after they wound down their car windows to escape the smell when one officer kept breaking wind.
The team noticed a second strange scent as they sucked in the welcome fresh air, and tracked it to a house before enforcing the pong arm of the law, the Police Federation’s magazine reported.
‘They 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.
It’s nice to see the officers maintaining a high degree of professionalism and maturity whilst on patrol!
‘All three officers’ suspicions were raised and they left the car to get some fresh air and find the cause of the cannabis smell.
[T]he officers, following their noses, found a cannabis factory with a crop worth £12,000.
Seven people at the property in Leicester were arrested.
The officer with the wind problem had been on a high-protein diet after taking up body building.
Oooh - stink-a-rama!! I’m surprised the officer wasn’t put on a solo beat to save his colleagues from his noxious gas!
Quite lucky though; it’s got to rank up there with the most serendipitous of poots.
Maybe placing certain officers on high-protein diets should become standard practice now to help in the fight against drugs.
