Officers using a drone to find a suspect were surprised to instead find a giant penis mowed into a field.
The image took up the size of an entire field.
Police wrote on Facebook on May 16: ‘It’s absolutely amazing what you see from the air and sometimes we’re caught a bit off guard!
‘Whilst in West Cornwall and searching for an offender who’d recently run off from police, we came across this unusual piece of artwork in a field, taking us completely by surprise!’
Some social media users joked that it was ‘an arrow’ to tell the police the offender ‘went that way’.
Kris Guest responded: ‘The best thing is that someone hasn’t just done it randomly they have actively planned this, procured a grass cutting apparatus, then made there way to this field and gave a circumcision if you will.’
Colin Dorrance added: ‘Must be a hardened criminal.’
