Information regarding Cannabis Factories or Farms

Alert message sent 11/07/2020 22:23:00

Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police

Good Evening Citizen,

You may have heard the phrase cannabis factory or farm but don't actually know what that means.  Usually this phrase is used to describe a property converted to grow cannabis. Sometimes only one room or a small area can be used to cultivate the plants. Sometimes the majority of a property can be converted.

We rely on community information to alert us of the location of cannabis factories and we welcome all information.

The things you can look out for and pass on to your neighbourhood team include:
Strong, cloying, sickly sweet smell of cannabis. Sometimes the smell can worsen over time as the plants mature and then drop off when the plants are cropped
Condensation on windows/doors
Closed blinds.and/or curtains (usually closed during the day time)
Lights left on 24 hours a day
Ultraviolet lights left on 24 hours a day
Excessive hear radiating through walls
Unusual activity at the address such as not leaving for work at regular times, no normal family comings and goings
Unloading and loading at peculiar times such as at night or in the early hours
Vehicles pulled up close to doors and garage doors so that the items coming in and out are not visible

If you have any concerns about a property please contact your local neighbourhood police team.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any concerns on the email below

As always your help is greatly appreciated as you are our eyes and ears and together we can improve our community.
