A multi million pound cannabis farm has been found and seized by police.
At around 10am on Thursday September 23 officers attended the property. Through the metal bars and plastic sheeting they spotted a growing room full of cannabis plants.
A search of the property revealed 897 plants across eight rooms along with growing equipment, with an estimated annual yield of between £3m- £4m.
A 16-year-old was arrested at the scene on suspicion of production of a controlled class B and currently remains in custody.
This is the second significant find in two days with over 1000 plants recovered from a property in Anfield on Wednesday.
Matt Brown, who leads the Cannabis Dismantling Team (CDT), said: “This was the second significant discovery – with nearly 2000 plants seized in just two days.
“We know that cannabis farms are often linked to serious criminality and their locations, frequently in residential areas, pose a real danger to neighbouring properties.
“If you spot any signs that cannabis is being grown near where you live and work please let us know so that we can continue to take action.”
Some of the signs that cannabis is being grown are:
– Strange smells and sounds
– Frequent and varied visitors to a property, often at unusual times
– Gardening equipment being taken into a property, such as plant pots, fertiliser, fans and industrial lighting
– Windows are sealed and covered or the curtains are permanently closed
– Heat from an adjoining property
– Birds gathering on a roof in cold weather
Individually these activities may seem commonplace, however, together may indicate something more suspicious
