500 cannabis plants confiscated in Aintree

ON Wednesday, 8 March 2017, Officers from Merseyside Police executed a drugs warrant at an the industrial unit on Wareing Road, Aintree and recovered a total of 500 plants. The plants found that the address are said to have an estimated street value of around ₤2,000,000 and are now being forensically examined. The force's cannabis dismantling team (CDT) also removed 10 large tents within the unit, which housed the plats, alongside growing equipment.

Chief Inspector Matt Boyle:- "This was significant recovery and these plants would have been sold on our streets, to line the pockets of criminals involved in serious and organised crime and to cause misery and harm in our communities. These have now been taken out of circulation we are now working to trace those responsible and bring them to justice. We cannot keep removing these plants without the help of the public; I would urge communities to continue to give us information about any drugs activity; who is operating these farms and where they are and we will take action as we have done today. If you have any information about cannabis farms in your area, please tell us so we can rid our communities of this blight. Anyone with any information can call:- 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on:- 0800 555 111."
