Cannabis farmers foiled by the snow (or lack of it)

Cannabis farmers foiled by the snow (or lack of it)

Cannabis farmers in the Netherlands were recently rumbled by the weather.

Police officers were alerted to the house after neighbours noticed the snow on the roof had melted far quicker than anywhere else on the street.

After raiding the building they found several lamps used to grow the illegal plants heating the roof of the building up, melting the snow.



This method of catching out crooks who grow drugs has become very common amongst police in the country, and they have even released images, such as the one above, letting citizens know what to look for if they suspect any of their neighbours of growing cannabis, and asking them to tweet the police if they see any suspicious roofs.

However doing so has led to people becoming concerned that homes with sauna's or poor insulation could be lead to people being wrongfully accused of growing drugs.

Police in the UK have resorted to thermal cameras mounted to helicopters to seek out houses that are abnormally warm and may contain cannabis farms.
