A raid was carried out at a house in Ely following a number of reports of drugs activity at the location.
Police officers conducted a Misue of Drugs Act warrant at the property along Walsingham on Thursday January 7.
"Unfortunately, the occupants were not in and no items were siezed this time," said a police spokesman.
Along with a photo of a busted door, a post on the Facebook page Policing East Cambridgeshire added: "No one told them that it was bad luck to keep your Christmas decorations up after January 6."
However, some social media users have since criticised the police's use of force to make an entry that didn't end in a result.
