A police sergeant on patrol in the Fens said he smelt “the devil’s lettuce’ that led to a £45,000 drugs find and recovery of stolen property.
The drugs were found at Ramsey Heights, a small village four miles from the town of Ramsey.
The police officer's colloquial term for marijuana extended to the rest of his report.
"Hugh amount of bud (also a colloquialism for marijuana) ready for sale and about ££45k worth of plants," he reported,
Police said that once the officers had found a key they were able to locate both the drugs and the stolen goods.
