A man in Australia had his house burglarizedÂ Friday and was so upset about it he called the police. Now any normal person in the world would have phoned the cops, but when the item in question is marijuana…he might have wanted toÂ wait until he calmed down before he called anyone.
As marijuana is illegal in Australia, when the police showed up at an unnamed man’s house in South Adelaide, the man who was burgled was arrested for possession.
The six intruders failed to get all of the man’s plants and police did not see any humor in the fact that a man wanted charges brought for stolen goods that were illegal in the first place.
The 35-year-old man has been released on bail after being charged with cultivating cannabis for sale. Police issued a statement:
“Members of the public are reminded that the growing of cannabis is not only illegal but can also attract other criminal activity such as home break-ins and assaults.”
