Man hides cannabis plant in laundry as police raid property in Powell Crescent, Totton
POLICE caught a man trying to hide a cannabis plant in his dirty laundry as they raided a suspected growing site in Totton.
Officers swooping on the Powell Crescent property last Thursday after reports the class B drug was being cultivated, and on arrival they spotted a cannabis plant on the balcony.
They seized a total of two plants, with the other found in the laundry pile. They also found a further quantity of the drug.
A 28-year-old local man was arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the production of cannabis but later de-arrested. He was requested to attend a police interview under caution.
A Facebook post by local officers afterwards said: “The male did try to hide one plant in with his dirty laundry, as he thought that it would mask the smell of the cannabis.”
