Cannabis grow discovered in Preston

A cannabis grow was discovered at a property in Preston earlier this week.

On Monday (January 22), as a result of information form the local community, officers from the neighbourhood policing team located the grow at a property on Clara Street which contained around 60 plants.

Evidence was also found that the electricity had been bypassed.

A 41 year old man from Blackburn was arrested on suspicion of cultivation of cannabis and abstracting electricity.

He has since been released on bail whilst investigations continue.

It aims to target the individuals and gangs involved in crime, as well as associated issues such as violence and intimidation, large scale drug supply, exploitation, and fraud, all of which can cause serious harm to local communities.
