A large-scale industrial cannabis grow was discovered at a disused unit on Glebe Farm Industrial Estate in Rugby yesterday.
Officers attended at 1.40pm following reports of strange smells and fertilizer left outside the premises. They discovered that the unit had been converted into a makeshift cannabis farm containing 545 plants and several hundred more seedlings.
Plants and seedlings were seized along with high value equipment used in the cultivation process. Power supplies to the unit had been bypassed and were made safe by the energy supplier.
The premises were found to be unoccupied at the time and enquiries are ongoing.
Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting reference 154 of 8 March 2022. Alternatively, reports can be made anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
