Subject: Man accidentally phones the police, cops find his marijuana farm

Written By: Philip Eno on 06/17/14 at 9:42 am

A man with an £18,000 cannabis farm in his front room was arrested after accidentally dialling 999 from the house in Crewe.

The 42-year-old suspect somehow rang the emergency number from a landline at the property in Haweswater Avenue in the Cheshire town.

The call was logged as an abandoned emergency call - and police officers were dispatched to check on the welfare of the caller.

But when they knocked on the door and went inside they found 18 mature cannabis plants being grown in the front room - each with an estimated street value of £1,000.

After the unusual drugs bust, Crewe Police tweeted: 'Epic fail of the day goes to the man in Crewe who rang 999 by accident. We arrived to check he was safe... and found his cannabis farm!'

The tweet quickly was quickly sent around the world with BBC presenter Jake Humphrey among those sending it on to his followers.

Local beat manager PC Shelley Woods, of Cheshire Police, said: 'The circumstances around this call being made beggars belief. We don't often find people in this position as accommodating to police inquiries.'

A spokesman for the Cheshire force said: 'Police received an abandoned emergency call originating from the Crewe area.

'As a result, local officers attended an address on Haweswater Avenue to carry out a concern for welfare check on the caller.

'On arrival, it emerged that the occupant of the property had dialled in error; however, a large number of suspected cannabis plants were discovered in the front room of the house.

'A 42-year-old local man has been arrested in connection with the discovery.'

How do you "accidentally" phone the police? ::)



Happens all the time howard.... I probably got 15 accidental 911 calls today....

sometimes they are cell phone pocket dials but I also get them from landlines....people for get they dialed a number so lets say the phone number is  910-5555.... they may dial 9-1- and then forget or accidentally hit the one again... even if they dial 9-1-1-0-5-5-5-5-  once they hit 911 the call automatically gets transferred to the designated law enforcement agency for that area.




We get a lot of people who hang up before the phone rings because they realize they dialed 9-1-1 and are embarrassed or think they can hang up before it rings....nope...it's a safety feature so the bad guy can't rip the phone out of the wall on you... once you completely dial 9-1-1 we get notified that a call was attempted even if it never rings...


I assume, in the area this guy was in... where he called 999 he just hit the button 3x too many... or if it was a cordless phone and he had it in his pocket he could've bumped it a few times too many...

That's why you don't keep your phone in your butt pocket while you're weeding the pot garden!

In the front pocket of your trousers, or your jacket.

Front pocket.  Plus, I only have one of those old flip phones.

Hard to deny when the cops meet you while you're watering the ganja plants.  I suppose you could tell them you thought they were tomato plants!

Yes...but you don't eat the plant as picked.  It's not very tasty and it has to be smoked or cooked to activate the THC. 

That said, marijuana food products are a burgeoning industry in the states where it has been legalized, such as Colorado and Washington. 

They call it "infusion."  You can make everything from brownies to Gummi Bears with pot!

Locally a cannabis farm was reported to the police by a postman who could smell the plants as he walked past the gate
