Cannabis worth over £60,000 has been recovered from an address in Beeston Rylands.


Officers raided an industrial unit in Lilac Grove at around 8.30am Friday 4th February after receiving information that drugs were being grown at the property. 

Police discovered more than 130 cannabis plants, some of which had grown to over 7ft tall.

Specialist growing equipment was also discovered, including high-intensity lighting.

Police have carried out forensic examinations and house-to-house enquiries as part of the ongoing investigation.
