Police uniform

Police are conducting investigations after a cannabis farm was discovered at Leavenheath.

Officers received a call from a member of the public after he raised concerns yesterday (Wednesday 20 October) and police attended a property in Honey Tye at about 12.45pm.

On entry to the property a large cannabis farm was discovered with around 80 plants inside the premises. Officers also found extensive hydroponics equipment and associated electrical paraphernalia with the abstraction of electricity also taking place.

Officers would urge local residents and businesses to be vigilant to strange activity and anyone with information about drug activity in their community to contact police. 
 
The signs to spot of a cannabis factory include a strong or sickly sweet smell in the air; buildings with windows constantly blocked off; high levels of heat and condensation and the constant buzz of ventilation. Such operations would most likely have people coming and going from an address at unsociable hours too.
 
Enquiries are on-going into the find and anyone with information regarding it or has seen any suspicious activity should contact Sudbury police, quoting crime number 37/58780/21
