Nottinghamshire Police has seized cannabis plants from a property in Calverton which they estimate were worth ‘tens of thousands of pounds’.

Officers from Operation Reacher executed a warrant at a property on Pepper Street along with support from the Arnold Neighbourhood Policing Team.

The raid took place on Saturday, July 25.

A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police said: “The cannabis grow was dismantled and tens of thousands of pound of cannabis seized. Pictures show just a sample of what we found – the whole house was full.

“One suspect was found on scene, arrested and taken to the Bridewell where he was questioned and later released on bail pending further enquiries.

“We know this type of police activity divides opinion, but we want you to understand the wider impact that this type of crime has on the community and neighbouring properties. It’s not just the drug dealing and the violent crime that go hand in hand happening on their doorsteps but also the local community have to put up with the smell, the noise and ASB that it brings with it.

“Organised crime groups exploit individuals to install and look after these grows; these individuals are often not electricians and are bypassing electric meters with dangerous wiring; therefore putting themselves and neighbouring houses at risk. It only takes a spark for a major incident to happen.
