Police report a ‘large’ amount of weed and related equipment was seized.

Police in the U.K. are trying to track down the owner of some illegal cannabis after a passerby in Blandford found multiple bags of the green stuff in a bush.

The drugs have since been disposed of and a full investigation launched, the statement notes. No arrests have yet been made.

It’s not clear if whoever put the cannabis inside the hedgerow was hiding or ditching it. Whatever the case, the U.K. has witnessed its share of failed bids.

Although not affording anywhere near the same level of cover, officers with the Malvern Police’s Safer Neighbourhood Team seized a big batch of mystery weed from a ditch after a passerby reported seeing suspicious plants this past March.

Also in March, a U.K. court heard that an accused drug courier being followed by police in 2021 apparently panicked and ditched a box and some bags of cannabis onto the grass near a quiet laneway. Unfortunately, a passerby saw the whole thing and the man, who was actually being pursued for a non-drug-related reason, was later apprehended and charged.

And although the suspected U.K. weed dealer who tried to evade police by hiding in a bush didn’t have any cannabis on him, a subsequent search of his home revealed cocaine and messages about cannabis dealing on his phone. He was handed a six-month sentence after being charged on drug offence.
