Lawmen called to an address in Adelaide, capital of South Australia, just after midnight discovered four men trying to steal the plants, which were being grown in two rooms of the house. They arrested the men —— and the 23-year-old homeowner, who was later charged with illegally growing 16 cannabis plants.
"He was calling from underneath his bed," a police spokesman told Reuters. "I don't know what he was thinking. Perhaps he was smoking too much of his own product."
