Gravesend drugs bust uncovers cannabis factory worth £23,000
A GRAVESEND cannabis factory thought to be worth around £23,000 has been discovered by Kent Police.
The incident has led to three men being arrested.
Officers were alerted to a strong smell of cannabis at an address in Windmill Street and after entering the property they discovered around 58 cannabis plants under specialist lighting.
A 32-year-old Gravesend man, and a pair from Essex men –aged 27 and 29 - were arrested on suspicion of production of cannabis and suspicion of possession with intent to supply both class A and B drugs.
All three have been bailed until February 10 next year pending further enquiries.
Gravesend Drugs Liaison Officer Police Constable Adrian Parsons said: "Although this factory was discovered by police officers on foot patrol in the town, this is a good example of how the public can help us to deal with these types of properties.
"If you smell what you believe to be cannabis growing, just as we did on the night, then we would encourage you to report it to us so we can investigate further."
