You know how it is. You've hooked up the hydroponics and the plants are finally coming in. Sure, the increased electricity bill may be digging into your Giro, but once those dank buds have been harvested you won't have to worry about money for the next four, possibly five, weeks (providing you don't smoke it all yourself).
So how do you celebrate such a momentous stride into the fast-paced world of low level drug dealing? You take a selfie! DUH! Sadly for Richard Edmunds, police intercepted the snap when he sent it to a pal. I don't know what legal processes the police had to go through to enable such surveillance (if any), but I assume it means little else is going on in South Molton, Devon.
The police soon raided Edmunds house, discovering the grow operation you see above. Police estimated the value of the drugs to be £2,300 and Edmunds was jailed for 20 months. Joshua Langmead, the Bell to his Barksdale, was jailed for eight months.
Both Edmunds and Langmead are aerospace engineers, so I recant my previous joke about Giros. Sorry! I can only imagine their expertise allowed them to cultivate the stickiest of buds. Too bad they forgot the golden rule: If you're going to grow drugs, don't take photos of them!
