We are continuing to target cannabis cultivation across Staffordshire following the discovery of around 300 plants in Stoke-on-Trent.
Local officers went to an address on Pall Mall, Hanley, this morning (27 July) and found an active cannabis grow inside.
Around 300 plants have been seized, along with equipment which had been fitted to cultivate a further 1,000 plants inside.
Forensic investigators and carrying out a number of enquiries this afternoon as we look to find out who is responsible.
The efforts follow our ongoing Operation Levidrome commitment, which sees officers across all ten local policing teams targeting drug supply and cannabis cultivation in Staffordshire.
Chief Inspector Scott McGrath, from Stoke North local policing team said “Work is continuing at pace to investigate this grow and to continue disrupting drug cultivation across the city.
“These grows are often linked to organised crime and have links to serious criminality, including human trafficking and modern slavery.”
Anyone with any information is asked to get in touch with us by calling 101, quoting incident 370 of 26 July, or through Live Chat on our website – www.staffordshire.police.uk
