In general, German police can be trusted. Not only locals seem to think so, refugees in Germany also find the police to be their “friend and helper” (“Freund und Helfer”). But even the police found the request of a 41-year-old Arab asylum seeker in Bavarian Puchheim to be a bit over the top.
The man turned to a uniformed police duo because security of the refugee shelter had taken a small bag of marihuana from him; he wanted to have them return the pot. The optimistic pothead will now be indicted for possession, but probably without any serious consequences since it was only a small quantity and the man had no intention to sell, sueddeutsche.de reports.
