From the yes-this-really-happened department:
A Clearwater police officer who pulled over a car following a burglary spotted a familiar-looking plant sticking out of a rear window.
A marijuana plant was plainly visible from the outside, according to the Clearwater Police Department's Facebook page.
According to the post, "The back seat was loaded with other potted plants --- and not the kind from the local home supplies store, either."
One person made this comment on the post: "It would be hilarious if he stole those. Even funnier if someone called to report them stolen."
Clearwater police then responded to the comment: "The plants were indeed stolen from an "acquaintance" who owed one of the men a drug debt. We arrested two suspects in the car that morning."
