Most of us are shivering in the grip of the Beast from the East – but the police appear to be rubbing their hands in glee.
The reason? Heavy snowfall can give away houses where people are growing weed, due to the heat emitted by all those UV lamps. It’s been used in previous drug busts, with Dutch police busting snow-free homes to find cannabis factories inside. Kingsbridge Police posted a request for locals to grass up their neighbours if they see roofs with no snow on them. The cops said, ‘If we are lucky enough to have some decent snow over the next few days, and if anybody notices a sight like this, can you let us know.’
