Police Uncover Large Cannabis Grow

Police uncovered tens of thousands of pounds worth of cannabis plants when they searched a house.

Officers acting on intelligence visited the property in Norman Drive, Hucknall, at around 12.15am on Saturday morning. 

After spotting evidence of a cannabis grow from outside, they forced entry and around nearly 100 plants spread across multiple rooms inside. 

The plants were taken away and destroyed and an array of growing and electrical equipment was put beyond use. 

Sergeant Andy Crosby, of the Ashfield neighbourhood policing team said: “Cannabis cultivation is a serious offence that is often linked to organised criminality and a range of related offences – from significant incidents of violence to people trafficking. 

“Cannabis grows themselves are also extremely dangerous. In this and in others we have found the electrics had been crudely bypassed and posed a clear risk to safety. 

“We take any reports we receive very seriously and won’t hesitate to take action where we think there is evidence of a cultivation

“This was a significant grow that had clearly taken somebody a lot of time and money to set up. I am pleased it has now been disrupted and a significant quantity of drugs taken off the streets.”
