British police troll marijuana grower after destroying crops

Thames Valley Police approach crime with a sense of humor.

Officers “seized and destroyed” marijuana crops found growing in a wooded area near Oxford, United Kingdom, on July 8. The makeshift farm was brought to their attention by a member of the public.

After digging up the plants, officers left a note for the grower. They shared it on their Twitter account along with a photo of the area between Wolvercote Mill Stream and the A34 where the plants were found.

The tweet garnered lots of attention online. Twitter users praised the police for having “a sense of humour,” calling the stunt “brilliant.” Thames Valley Police graciously replied to many commenters.
