Landlady discovers cannabis farm in unrented Bury property

A landlady notified police after she discovered a sizeable cannabis farm at her unrented property on Higher Croft in Whitefield, on Wednesday evening.

Police had planned on entering the property at the weekend after it suggested no one was residing at the address but people were coming and going from it, which had alerted suspicions.

Inside the address were around 140 plants growing and 71 pots that had just been harvested. The approximate street value was around £50,000.

Enquiries are still ongoing at this stage to find those responsible with no arrests made, but further recent intelligence has been obtained.

Inspector Gareth Edwards said: “First of all I would like to thank the local community for reporting these concerns to us, we are continuing to act on your information and have eventually managed to stifle a form of criminal activity that has far-reaching consequences.

“The importance of engaging with our officers at local meetings and direct through Bee In The Loop means we can continue to protect you and provide a robust and reliable resource to those who are intent on causing harm in our area.

“We are committed on tackling the use and supply of drugs within Bury and an investigation is continuing in the background. We have dedicated officers focused on tracking those responsible down.

“If anyone has information about this incident or any concerning behaviour around the property in previous weeks, you are asked to call us on 101 quoting incident 3023 of 22/05/2024. Alternatively, details can be passed on anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
