Officers from Lancashire Constabulary discovered a large cannabis factory when moving to arrest a man in Nelson last night (November 9).

Police were attending an address at Hendon Road to arrest a male who was wanted – but instead found the haul along with a man who was hiding in the loft of the property.

The man was taken into custody.

A spokesperson for Lancashire Constabulary said: “Today officers from the taskforce have attended an address on Hendon Road in Nelson to arrest a male who was wanted.

“Unfortunately the wanted male wasn’t present however inside the address was a large scale cannabis cultivation and a male was strangely found hiding in the loft.

“This male is currently spending his Saturday evening in the on-suite of Burnley custody. Officers will continue to target people involved in the production and supply of drugs.”
