Fylde Police have posted the below statement today in relation to Cannabis plants being seized from a local “unofficial” allotment!

Have you lost the below gardening tools? Do you know who owns them? Contact us and we can arrange their return 😁

Fylde NHP officers were made aware of a suspicious unofficial allotment, located well off the beaten track through a maze of overgrown trees and waist high nettles.

PCSO Seed and PC Roberts attended and were surprised to find in excess of 30 small cannabis plants, some gardening tools, fertiliser and lots and lots of plastic water bottles. A considerable amount of effort had gone into the cultivation.

The cannabis was seized for destruction, the water bottles collected for recycling, and the tools pictured booked into Blackpool property store awaiting reclamation.

PC Roberts left a note suggesting that the unknown grower donates their time to a community garden scheme, so their green fingered skills don’t go to waste next time!
