A major cannabis grow has been disrupted following a police operation in Wick.
Sussex Police’s Tactical Enforcement Unit (TEU) executed a Misuse of Drugs Act warrant at the unit at Lineside Industrial Estate around 4.15pm on 28 June.
Within the premises were approximately 1,300 cannabis plants representing significant street value, as well as various equipment to support the production of the plants.
Forensics investigators were called in, as were UK Power Networks, who made the scene safe after confirming the electricity had been bypassed.
The plants and equipment were subsequently destroyed, and an investigation is now underway.
TEU Sergeant Andy Bryant said: “It is clear from the number of plants discovered and equipment seized that this was an extremely sophisticated cannabis cultivation project.
“Criminal operations such as this will not be tolerated in Sussex, and we will continue to gather information to disrupt this activity and seek to bring any offenders to justice.”
