Information sent on behalf of Devon and Cornwall Police


Police issue appeal after more than 460 cannabis plants are seized
Police have appealed for information after seizing more than 460 plants from a large cannabis factory discovered in a Plymouth house.
Officers were called to a property in Waterloo Close on Friday morning (6 September) after workmen investigating a gas leak stumbled across the sophisticated setup.
Detectives, scene-of-crime officers and support units all attended the scene.
Investigators are now seeking the public’s help to locate those responsible for the cannabis factory.
Detective Constable Nathan Drew, of Plymouth CID, said: “Police are appealing for witnesses who saw any suspicious males entering or leaving the address over the last few months to come forward.
“We are seeking two males of Oriental appearance who had rented the property.
“The upstairs and loft had been converted, leaving the downstairs area normal-looking.  Anyone visiting, such as the landlord, were none-the-wiser.
“The tenants had been there for approximately nine months and were able to operate without raising any suspicions of their unsuspecting neighbours.”
Anyone who has information is urged to contact police by calling 101, or emailing 101@dc.police.uk, quoting crime reference CR/80925/19.
Information can also be passed anonymously to independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555111, or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org
