Farting Cop Helps Bust Pot Farm

June 14, 2013 | Andy Cush

Some cops were driving through Leicester, England, when one of them farted. Then he farted again. And again, and again, and again. Then, another officer cracked a window to get some fresh air, and asked the offending cop what he’d been eating. After “fits of giggles and denials,” the officers noticed the smell of weed in the air. They tracked it to a nearby grow operation and busted the proprietors, who were allegedly tending to about £ 12,000 worth of cannabis (or about $18,800). Or something like that. For what it’s worth, fart cop says he was passing so much gas because he had recently switched to a “high-protein diet.”
