Cannabis farm worth up to £4m found in Waterloo

Cannabis farm worth up to £4m found in Waterloo

by Tom Martin (September 2021)

A HUGE cannabis farm worth between £3-4million has been found in a property in Waterloo.

Officers went to the address on South Road on Thursday, September 23 when they discovered nearly 900 plants located across eight rooms (the farm is shown, left).

They were hidden behind metal bars and plastic sheeting on the windows.

A 16 year-old male was arrested at the scene on suspicion of production of a controlled drug Class B. He currently remains in custody.

It was the second significant find in two days, with over 1,000 plants recovered from a property in Anfield the previous day.

Matt Brown, who leads the Cannabis Dismantling Team said: “This was the second significant discovery – with nearly 2000 plants seized in just two days.

“We know that cannabis farms are often linked to serious criminality and their locations, frequently in residential areas, pose a real danger to neighbouring properties.

“If you spot any signs that cannabis is being grown near where you live and work please let us know so that we can continue to take action.”

 Anyone with information on suspected drug production or criminal activity in their community can contact @MerPolCC, call 101 or come forward anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
