A DOPEY stoner has left a black bin bag full of cannabis at a charity shop collection point instead of unwanted clothing.
The packed bin liner was dropped at a charity collection bin in Lee-on-the-Solent, Hampshire on Friday and now police are looking to trace the owner.
The pungent bag was picked by a surprised charity worker during routine morning collections.
After discovering that the bag wasn’t filled with second hand clothes, the member of staff handed the dumped bag in to police.
Images taken by Fareham Police show the large black bin bag filled to the brim with cannabis leaves.
Large green leaves can be seen sitting amongst the bag along with thick stocks from the illegal class B plant.
Cops from Fareham Police shared their pictures onto Facebook on Friday, writing:”It’s amazing what people will give to charity, but this time, it’s a bit much… a bin bag full of cannabis!
“If you have donated this item in the midst of a purple haze, please get in touch as I’d love to talk to you about your generosity!
“Although I do have a comical image of a person going to their stash and only to find a bag full of old clothes!”
Since they shared the image on, their post has received over 1,700 shares from social media users and over 600 comments.
Ronan Martin said: “To be fair if the charity had sold that off they would have raised quite a bit of money.”
Mel Dalton wrote: “That’s where my bag of tomato plant cutting went! Can I arrange to collect them?”
Nikki Allan commented: “If you don’t know what to do with it, I’d be happy to take as a donation from you.”
Brian Murphy wrote: “Looks like somebody’s mum found their plant they were growing in the closet!”
A spokeswoman for Hampshire Constabulary today said: “A quantity of cannabis was located at a charity collection bin in the Marine Parade car park on Lee-on-Solent on 7 May.
“A charity worker collected the bin bags and handed them into Fareham police station.
“The cannabis has been seized and will be destroyed. There are no further lines of enquiry at this stage.
“Unfortunately, we are unable to confirm a value.”
