Nottinghamshire Police sell cannabis at auction

by | 9th, July 2012

FOR just £21.50, Nottinghamshire Police sold a Sony PSP games console made of cannabis. The item had been handed into lost property. No-one claimed it, so Nottinghamshire Police put it up for auction at Mansfield Police Station. The advert trilled:

“Sony PSP with case. Not tested. Average condition.” 

Bidding gtarted at £1. Daniel Ford, 33, won the day. He tells us:

“It was strange that the police didn’t open up the compartments of the carry case and look inside. I found a pair of headphones and the cannabis, which smelled strongly.”

A police spokeswoman said: “We are glad this has been highlighted to us. We will speaking to officers and staff members who dealt with the item.”

Or didn’t deal it, as is the case…
