142 cannabis plants discovered in Bury ‘farm’

Police discovered 142 cannabis plants after executing an intelligence-led warrant at an address in Bury today.

It was part of Moorside and Redvales neighbourhood teams’ commitment to tackling drug supply and associated problems within the community.

The morning action saw one man, aged 40, arrested on suspicion of cultivation of cannabis and immigration offences. He remains in custody for questioning.

The plants were recovered  from a house in Hampshire Close, in addition to several bags of vacuum-packed cannabis ready to be distributed.

Inspector Kevin Wright said: “This was a great find and demonstrates our continued work to disrupting the supply and trade of drugs in Bury and the wider area.

“By removing these drugs from circulation, we have succeeded in sending a clear message that we will tackle criminality in our community and are committed to shutting down activities in which criminals can benefit from. 

“If you have any information, I would encourage you to get in touch with us, as our work is greatly assisted by intelligence in the community.”

The public can provide information by calling 101 or contacting Crimestoppers anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
