£125k cannabis farm uncovered
4:10pm Wednesday 1st August 2012 in Chorley
Police uncovered cannabis plants valued at £125,000 after an operation in rural Chorley.
Around 250 plants were discovered by officers after a raid at a warehouse in Long Lane, Heath Charnock.
Once properly harvested the plants police estimate the drugs would have been worth around £125,000 at a street value level. Inquires are on-going with police appealing to members of the public for any information about the cannabis.
No arrests have been made so far related to the find and the warehouse was unoccupied when officers conducted the raid.
Detective constable Carl Tobin, of Chorley CID, said: “On the ground these recovered plants are worth a huge amount and this is a great result for the constabulary. We are investigating the find and would ask anyone in the community with information to contact the police, you can do this anonymously.
“We continue to target cannabis cultivation in the district and put maximum effort into catching and punishing those who profit from drug crime.”
