Suspected break in at Sidcup nightclub leads to huge cannabis plant discovery

A SUSPECTED burglary at a Sidcup nightclub led police to a drugs factory with more than 200 cannabis plants and three people have since appeared in court.

Police were called to reports of a break in at Plastic Red in Station Road on December 20 at 10.50am.

They arrested a man at the scene and following further investigations they discovered a huge cannabis factory in Pratts Bottom as well as a prohibited firearm and ammunition.

A spokesman for Bexley Police said the cannabis had an approximate street value of £800,000.

Three people have now been charged and appeared in court.
