Ms Hewitson, of Exmouth, asked for help from BBC Radio Devon’s show The Potting Shed - who told her she had unwittingly grown a 1.5m cannabis plant.
“I sent a picture in via email and I got a couple of interesting emails back, including one from the police. They said they wouldn’t prosecute me as I’d done it in good faith”, she said.A spokesperson for the BBC told i100: “It is a genuine story. The expert advised the caller to contact the police.”
A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police told the BBC: “The lady has committed an offence although there are mitigating circumstances so we would not look to take it further although we would take it away.”
And then the Police Man took the plant and planted it in a pot in his basement, next to his other confiscated cannabis plant.
