We are appealing for information after finding a cannabis grow spanning two adjoining properties in Featherstone.
We received reports from local residents who had noticed signs that the addresses were being used to cultivate cannabis.
As a result, we carried out a warrant near Brookhouse Lane yesterday (25 July) and recovered more than 60 cannabis plants and growing equipment from inside.
Officers are carrying out enquiries to identify those responsible and are asking for anyone with any information to get in touch.
Chief Inspector Chris Cotton said: “I’d like to thank the local community for reporting their concerns to us and helping us to compile enough evidence to obtain a search warrant.
“All of the plants have been seized and work is continuing at pace to identify those responsible and bring them to justice.
“I’d encourage those who spot the signs of cannabis cultivation to report their concerns to us so we can take appropriate action and tackle the supply of illegal drugs in Staffordshire.”
These signs include:
Anyone with any information, particularly those with CCTV and doorbell footage from the area are asked to get in touch.
Call us on 101, quoting incident 121 of 25 July, or message us using Live Chat on our website.
To report anonymously, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
