Britain’s dumbest criminals part 4…

Perhaps this half-witted couple had been smoking a little too much of their own stock when they decided to ring the police to report that their £10,000 cannabis farm had been stolen.

Officers easily weeded out dumb duo Colin Roberts and Mandy Coghlan who had contacted them after discovering that dozens of their own cannabis plants had been taken.

However, when police tried to arrest Roberts for producing the drug, his partner Coghlan threatened officers with an air pistol, Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court heard.

The court was told that on arrival at Coghlan and Roberts’ home on April 23, they were hit by a pungent smell of cannabis.

The pair reported that £10,000 of their belongings had been stolen – and admitted that it was in the form of cannabis plants when questioned.

Officers quickly established that the cannabis had been stolen and Roberts was arrested for production of the drug – which he took to relieve his pain from Crohn’s Disease.

The court heard that on witnessing her partner’s arrest Coghlan became angry and grabbed a loaded air pistol and pointed it at one of the police officers.

The pair have been handed 12-month prison sentences, suspended for two years.


Love the sentence… I was threatened with imprisonment once… for trying to see my kids when my ex had stopped access… (I drove to the school to say hello…)…

These knobs got nothing…nada…zilch…zero…

If this had happened in the USA… he would have been shot dead for pointing a weapon at a cop…


Knowing that cops are armed there-would he have done it?
