When two plain-clothes police officers approached a woman smoking a joint at the Gothenburg Cultural Festival in Sweden, they noticed a fellow sitting nearby toss what they say was a bag of weed. As they were moving in for the bust, a seagull snatched the bag and flew away. While the police were distracted by the bird, the man reportedly took off.
"What the policemen did not expect was that a third party would interfere," explained police spokesperson Stefan Gustafsson.
My hope is that the man and the seagull were in cahoots.
