200 cannabis plants which could generate £400,000 a year have been seized by police in Greater Manchester.

Officers from the Bolton Central Integrated Neighbourhood Policing Team  carried out the raid at a house on Woodfield Street in Great Lever on Friday 31st May.

The plants had an estimated yield of £100,000 worth of cannabis every three months, which would have resulted in a turnover of £400,000 per year.

A 19 year old man is in police custody on suspicion of cultivating cannabis.

Detective Sergeant Pete Astbury from Bolton Central Integrated Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “Today's success is a result of information received from members of the public. It is a significant seizure of cannabis and we are grateful for the cooperation of residents.

“This type of cannabis farm is operated by organised crime groups who are determined to make considerable amounts of money by whatever means they can. The seizure of such an amount of cannabis will have a significant financial impact for them, as well as taking a substantial amount of cannabis off the streets of Bolton.”
