- Trainee sniffer dogs accidentally discovered a cannabis factory while taking part in a children’s workshop.
- The dog handlers alerted the police, who raided the building and found cannabis with $1.7 million street value.
- Three men were found hiding in a storage cupboard and arrested.
Trainee sniffer dogs taking part in a children’s workshop uncovered a £1.3 million ($1.7 million) cannabis factory in the building next door.
The dogs were taking part in a sensory workshop for children with special educational needs in Leicester, UK, when they kept returning to smell the same section of wall, according to Leicester Police.
The private security company that trains the dogs noticed the animals’ behavior and alerted local police, who visited the premises and discovered the major cannabis cultivation, authorities said.
The cannabis plants covered most of the top floor of the building and had a street value of £1.3 million ($1.7 million), police said.
