Cannabis farm found at property in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire.

Police have seized more than 100 cannabis plants after officers raided a house in Eastwood.

Officers responded to a drug production report and discovered the grow, with plants spread over two floors worth of rooms in a property in Ryemere Close, Eastwood, on Sunday morning.

A 27-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of cannabis cultivation and stealing electricity but police investigations are still ongoing.

Police Sergeant James Rimmington, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Every cannabis grow we find and dismantle deprives criminals from profiting from their illegal activity.

“This was a sophisticated grow and I am pleased we were able to seize these drugs before they could be peddled on our streets.

“Drugs wreck lives and their use and supply have a negative impact upon communities which is why the force takes drug-related crime so seriously.

“The cultivation and sale of cannabis can often be linked to wider organised crime and other serious offences like human trafficking, modern slavery or county lines.

“Not only that but cannabis growing can also be extremely dangerous due to the fire risk, especially if people are living in adjoining properties.

“We all have a role to play in keeping our local areas safe from drug-related crime which blights our communities and as force we will continue to pursue those individuals responsible.

“Anyone involved in this type of illegal activity risks not only the police knocking at their door but a journey to custody, potential prison time and a criminal record.”

Anyone with information on drug dealing in their area is urged to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Young people can also anonymously give information about crime using a secure online form, through Fearless Youth Association – which is a part of Crimestoppers.

Fearless have a website offering young people non-judgemental advice so they feel confident in reporting crime.

The service also engages with and educates youths about the consequences of their choices around crime.
