Cannabis plant grows between court and police

A cannabis plant managed to survive an estimated two months in the heart of Timaru's crime fighting centre before being discovered by a policeman.

The 25cm plant was spotted by Sergeant Grant Lord this week as he went to talk to a group of people outside the town's courthouse - which is next to the police station.

Mr Lord told the Timaru Herald the plant, which was growing at the base of a table, was likely to be a couple of months old and meant someone had possibly lit up a joint and discarded the butt there.

The plant was plucked from the ground and destroyed.


Thanks NZ Herald.
