Police seized tomato plants - thought it was drugs
NORWAY: It was in June that Tvedestrand police came across some very suspicious "cannabis plants" at Sandøya in Aust-Agder.

The plants were seized and kept in a garage at the sheriff's office, reports the local paper Tvedetrands avis.

But as it turned out the plants were not illegal at all, but quite normal tomato plants in pots.

- It is really nothing, says chief of police, Morten Tobiassen, to Dagbladet.

- We seized something green in the summer in connection with a criminal case, and as it turned out later it was not drugs.

- Why did you think it was cannabis plants?

- Well, now it is ridiculed, it sounds like the police can not see the difference, but it was only made a seizure of some plants. As it turned out in retrospect, it was not cannabis plants but tomato plants, excuses Tobiassen.
