Police raided the home of drug dealers after receiving a tip that they were growing drugs in their house, according to police in the United Kingdom.

Cheltenham police said that they raided the home of a man and a woman who were suspected of selling drugs, and they found a suspicious looking tree.

The tall plant was decorated to look like a Christmas tree, complete with holiday decorations and ornaments. The plant was tested at the scene, and it came back positive for marijuana.

Police seized the plant and marijuana growing equipment.

The man and the woman who live on Gloucester Street, were arrested on Wednesday and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell.

Police published a photo of the marijuana plant disguised as a Christmas tree on Twitter. “Not your traditional Xmas Tree! Two arrested in Cheltenham on suspicion of cannabis cultivation,” police wrote on Twitter.
