Police have smashed yet another ‘flourishing’ cannabis farm amid a huge effort to crackdown on drugs and gangs during lockdown.
Officers discovered an extensive grow inside a derelict building near Sutton Coldfield’s Falcon Lodge estate on Saturday morning, May 23.
They found two floors of the property had been filled with rows and rows of plants – shown in an image from the bust.
It came after officers were alerted by the water board and followed another successful raid by the team just a day before.
The officers tweeted a photo of the plants – which have all now been seized and destroyed.
They wrote: “Alerted by the water board to a flourishing crop of cannabis in a derelict building near the Falcon Lodge estate.
“Two floors of plants were seized and destroyed.”
Just a day before, on Friday, May 22, officers executed another warrant on a property less than two miles away in Fledburgh Drive.
Officers acted on community intelligence to search the address and a quantity of drugs were seized during the raid.
A neighbourhood alert, issued to give thanks to the public, read: “A drugs warrant has been successfully executed today on Fledburgh Drive Sutton Coldfield and a quantity of drugs have been seized.
“This was due to community intelligence that has been given to the police which has allowed us to apply to the courts for a search warrant.
“A big thank you from the police to you!”
