Knife crime in the U.K. is a serious problem, but still, we can’t help but be amused by the photos police post of potential weapons they’ve taken off the streets … and from people’s gardens (hey, that garden trowel could have hurt someone). Last we checked, the police in England were encouraging citizens to report if they saw something “suspicious,” like someone buying knives or hammers from the hardware store.

We guess these knives weren’t necessarily found during a weapons sweep, but a charity shop did turn over all of the cutlery it had in stock.

The best part is, if you look closely, you can see that they also managed to take a rusty spoon out of circulation for proper disposal.
