London - Diplomatic Protection Racket cops were called to the Regent's Park residency of US ambassador Matthew 'Mr Potato-Head' Barzun this weekend amid reports of foul fumes leaking from the shrubbery where an illicit crystal meth distillery is suspected of being concealed
The raid follows last week's stories about a bizarre one-upmanship game among diplomatic envoys in the British capital following the North Korean ambassador's astonishing $50m annual turnover of Category A narcotics, home brewed from the relative comfort of his residency potting shed.
Forensic experts examining the Regent's Park site today have described finding a smouldering horticultural compost heap whose fetid vapors that may have been mistaken for toxic waste from an industrial-sized LSD pressure cooker.
"One little whiff and the Metro Police sniffer loan-dog was a goner," Sgt Wilfrid O'Bagpus sighed.
The ambassador's wife's Bichon frisee bitch is likely to whelp tomorrow.
