Dozens Of Cannabis Plants Discovered In Mansfield House

30th June 2020
News, Mansfield

Police discovered a large number of cannabis plants at a house in Mansfield yesterday morning.

Officers carried out a search warrant on a property in Westdale Road shortly after 9am and discovered nearly 50 plants in various rooms throughout the house.

Nobody was in at the time of the raid and enquiries are continuing.

 

Inspector Nick Butler, responsible for neighbourhood policing in the Mansfield area, said:

“Local people consistently tell us that drug related crime is a major concern for them. That’s why we regularly act on intelligence from members of the public to carry out proactive searches like this one.

“Our aim is to disrupt the local supply of drugs and to place all local producers on notice: that this is not an activity we will allow you to get away with. Drug misuse blights communities and ruins lives and we will keep up the pressure on those people who make their living by supplying them.

“Cannabis consumption can also be an extremely anti-social behaviour as it creates a very pungent smell that can be very discomforting for people’s neighbours.”

 

The plants found have now been taken away and destroyed. A specialist dismantling team has also removed or put beyond use an array of sophisticated growing equipment.

Anyone with any information on this incident is asked to call police on 101 quoting reference 148 of 29 June. Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
