Police who received a tip-off regarding a cannabis farm decide to sprinkle a bit of banter into proceedings when they couldn't find those responsible.
Thames Valley Police heard about the plantation in a woodland area near Oxford on Saturday, but when they arrived, there was no one around.
What did they do? Well, like an Amazon delivery driver, they left a note.
On Friday, our officers dug up a cannabis plantation in Oxford, following a tip off.
The officers even left a little message too! :innocent::joy: pic.twitter.com/4dUXAjCjET

It reads: "Ooops! Sorry we missed each other, but feel free to call me on 101 so we can discuss a deal. Lots of love, TVP xx."
Sadly, it looks like the fun police were also out in force as a load of party poopers replied to the Tweet criticising them. Bore off.
Twitter user @pompeyrabbi wrote: "I thought your job was to watch the scene and wait for criminals to return (and arrest them), not post (un)amusing tweets trying to be cool."
While @hd420p added: "What a waste of time and resources. Just feeding the black market, then you show off about it... shame on you!"
Bloody hell, the police can't do right for doing wrong these days, can they?
Luckily, most people realised that the police have more important things to do than hide behind bushes and wait for people growing plants.
Like @SteigerRose, who Tweeted: "Hahaha! Brilliant, liked to have seen their faces when the note was read, nice one boys."
The police added that they did it because they 'have manners'.
Anyway, in case you were wondering, the plants were seized and destroyed and no one has been arrested in connection with the plantation. No harm done then, really?
