Police reveal inside of ‘cannabis factory’

Officers say £750,000 of class B drug has been seized

10 November, 2019

ROW after row of carefully cultivated plants, this is the “hidden cannabis factory” which police say they uncovered after being called to a disturbance in Kilburn.

Officers released photos of the scene as a drugs investigation was opened late last Wednesday. Detectives estimated that the confiscated plants and growing equipment had a street value of £750,000. A knife was also recovered. Police had been responding to a disturbance in Bransdale Close.

The potential legalisation of cannabis had been a hot topic among rival election candidates in recent weeks. Police in Camden Town, however, are en­gaged in a long-term attempt to crack down on dealers of the class B drug.
