Cambridge drugs factory with £100,000 of cannabis plants is closed down
A cannabis factory has been shut down thanks to a member of the public.
Police said they were called on Friday (December 11) following concerns that drugs were being grown in a property in Kendal Way, Cambridge.
Officers arrived to find around 100 cannabis plants with a value of up to £100,000. Police said the factory has now been dismantled and the plants destroyed.
No arrests have been made at this time but investigations are on-going, officers added.
PC Andy Shedd, from the Cambridge neighbourhood policing team, said: “Thanks to the information provided by the local community, a substantial amount of illegal drugs have been stopped from finding their way to the streets.
“We would encourage people to continue to look out for signs of illegal cannabis factories including blacked out windows of caravans, disused buildings and warehouses and people coming and going at various time of the day.”
