A toddler playing around with his parent’s phone accidentally alerted police to their cannabis farm.

When officers attended the address after receiving the emergency call, they instantly smelled the drug.

Upon smelling what they assumed to be cannabis, the police conducted a search of the property.

The ‘emergency’ led to the police discovering 9 cannabis plants at the address in Salford, Greater Mancherster, which they instantly seized.

Following the discovery of the plants, police confirmed that a 29-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis.

Seeing the funny side to the story, GMP Salford West tweeted shorty after the arrest: “Look what we found following an abandoned 999 call made by a child!”

They then posted a picture of the plants, with the caption: “How many times must we stress don’t let your children play with the phone? #NaughtyChild”

Figures released from last year show that, with over 1,000 cannabis plants seized a week, Greater Manchester is the ‘cannabis capital’ of the UK.

The toddler is believed to be around 2-years-old. We bet his parents won’t be letting him play with the phone again anytime soon…
