£1 million in cannabis plants found in Dudley raid by police

Officers from our Brierley Hill neighbourhood team executed a warrant at an industrial unit in Kingswinford this morning (19 September), acting on intelligence reports that the drug was being cultivated at the site.

When they gained access to the property, officers found some thousand or so plants in several rooms throughout the building with an estimated street value of well over £1million.

Nobody was present when officers arrived but living quarters were discovered, containing CCTV equipment and a large quantity of groceries, suggesting that the building had recently been inhabited.

Officers also found the electricity supply had been bypassed with freshly laid tarmac revealing that parts of the pavement outside the unit had been dug up and re-laid.

Officers remain at the scene and have called in specialist support to help make the site safe so that a further search can be conducted, material can be gathered for forensic analysis and the plants can be disposed of.

Drug dealing has no place on our streets, it fuels crime and cannabis farms where drugs are cultivated pose additional dangers of fire and electrocution associated with re-routing the electricity.
