Police in the US have said they will keep 16 cannabis plants they discovered until the owner comes forward to collect them.

The Gainesville Police Department took to Facebook to show off the find, which was discovered on a secluded trail by an off duty officer walking his dog.

The 16 individually potted plants were planted underneath a larger bush.

"The officers collected the plants and are storing them until the rightful owners can be found," the post says.

They even posted a note on the spot they found them.

And the post finishes with: "So - if they are yours...please give us a call to set up a time that we can speak about them".

We wonder will the owner take up the offer?
