Police discover cannabis factory in Mansfield terraced house

Police have charged a suspect after discovering a cannabis factory containing more than 180 plants when they raided a terraced house.

Officers executed a warrant at the property in Albion Street, Mansfield, on Tuesday (5 December) at around 7.20am.

The Mansfield central neighbourhood policing team had received information suggesting the address was being used to grow cannabis.

When they knocked down the front door they found plants growing in five different areas of the house, including upstairs, downstairs and in the loft.

Twenty-seven-year-old Jaup Molla, of Albion Street, has been charged with producing a Class B drug and is expected to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court today (6 December).

Police Constable Patrick Shone, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a large cannabis grow and I’m pleased neighbourhood officers have been able to shut it down, destroy the plants and charge a suspect.

“I would urge anyone who believes cannabis is being produced in their neighbourhood to get in touch.

“Your information could be vital in helping us to take positive action.”

All the cannabis seized from the address will be  destroyed and the equipment put out of action.
