According to Police, a report was received regarding the discovery of three suspected Cannabis plants within the vicinity of Corvanaghan Road, Cookstown.

The discovery was made at approximately 5.10pm on Sunday, 18th July.

In a social media post , Police quipped: "Temperatures were so hot today (Sunday) someone brought their plants out of the roofspace to get some sunlight and save electricity.

"They can be picked up at Cookstown Station any time tomorrow, or if its handier for you, drop us a PM with your address and we'll leave them back to the house.”

The Police social media statement concluded: “Don't worry about leaving out a key, we'll bring our own!”
