Indian police have claimed rats are behind the disappearance of around 440lbs of cannabis that had been held in police stations after being seized from drug dealers.

A court in Uttar Pradesh state was told that rats had apparently eaten through the entire haul of drugs when it asked police to provide it as evidence.


'Rats are tiny animals and they have no fear of the police. It's difficult to protect the drug from them,' the court said, according to BBC News.

Judge Sanjay Chaudhary also cited other cases in which vanishing drug stashes in the state's district of Mathura were blamed on rodents by police.

In one example, part of a massive 850lbs of cannabis held in storage by police vanished, with hungry rats taking the blame for its disappearance.

The judge said that police had no way to deal with ravenous rodents, as the animals are 'too small'. 

He also suggested that to protect seized drugs from 'fearless mice', hauls should be auctioned to labs and medicine manufacturers, with the government keeping the proceeds.

In a plot twist, a senior Mathura police official said that some of the missing cannabis had been 'damaged due to heavy rains,' and not touched by mice or rats.

Rodents have been blamed for various incidents in India over the years.

In 2018, rats nibbled through more than £13,000 worth of banknotes after busting into a cash machine in India.

And the same year, a three-storey house collapsed after rats burrowed into its foundations, almost killing a family of eight who had left just hours earlier.

South Salem Man Charged After Woman Killed In Hit-Run Crash At Cross River Shopping Center

A suspect has been apprehended after a woman was killed in a hit-and-run crash at a busy shopping center in Northern Westchester.

The crash happened around 8:45 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1 in the town of Lewisboro at the Orchard Square Shopping Center at the intersection of routes 35 and 121 in the hamlet of Cross River.

The victim, Randi J. Blattberg, age 65, of Mount Vernon, was transported to Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco with life-threatening injuries, New York State Police said. She was later transported to Westchester Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.

An investigation determined the operator who struck the victim and then fled the scene was Jeffrey S. Dickens, age 62, of South Salem. He was subsequently arrested for leaving the scene of a fatal motor vehicle accident, a Class D felony.

Dickens was arraigned before the town of Lewisboro Court and remanded to the Westchester County Jail in lieu of $35,000 cash bail, $100,000 bond, or $200,000 partially secure bond. He is scheduled to reappear before the court on Monday, Dec. 12.
