A police officer making inquiries about a motoring incident stumbled upon a cannabis farm in a terraced house in Preston.
Debra Quinn, 51, and Gary Jones, 51, lived together at the house in Fazackerley Street, Ashton when the officer called following a road traffic accident.
But inside the house he noticed there was a strong smell of cannabis and asked Jones if there was any of the drug in the property. Jones produced a bag of cannabis from a drawer in the kitchen but when he was asked if there was any more cannabis in the house he claimed there was not. The officer went upstairs where he found a locked room.
