YouTube Video Leads Police To Pot Farm

When a 25-year-old saw how great his pot crop was he decided to post a video on YouTube. He gave a through report on the stages of growth of his crop in Bridgwater, Somerset.
The man made it very easy for the police to find him, he used his real name.

Police searched his house and was able to take in one large cannabis plant and hydroponics equipment for grow house purposes. reports:

PC Adrian Peck, of Avon and Somerset police, said: “The male had been videoing the growth of the plant over a number of months and uploading his horticultural endeavors onto the site to document it – providing us with fairly conclusive evidence.

“The cultivation of cannabis is illegal. If you break the law and are foolish enough to then advertise your criminal activities on the Internet, it makes it very easy for the Police to catch you.”

The man admitted to the police that he was cultivating cannabis. He received an official police warning. It is against police policy to release a person’s name if they have received a warning.
