A cannabis factory, containing a large amount of cultivated cannabis with a street value of approximately £8,000, was recently discovered in a residential property in Acton.

At around 3:00pm on Sunday 15th April Police received a call about a break-in in Noel Road. The witness had seen two men drive up in a white van, then force open the back patio doors of No. 24 Noel Road.

Officers arrived a short time later and chased two men who ran towards Horn Lane. One man was caught outside St. Gabriel’s Church,  but the other escaped and disappeared.

Police searching the house in Noel Road found that it was being used to cultivate cannabis. The house was fitted out with a sophisticated ventilation system. All windows had been blacked out and there were other signs of equipment used to cultivate the plants including UV lights.  

Officers discovered 250 cannabis plant pots, bags of fertilizer and five full bin liners full of cultivated cannabis. The electricity supply had been tampered with to allow the abstraction of electricity without the knowledge of the supplier.  A White Ford Escort Van parked outside the house was also seized.

The 24-year-old man caught came from South East London. He was in possession of a quantity of CDs and DVDs, as well as a small quantity of cannabis. He was arrested on suspicion of burglary and possession of Class C drugs and bailed until 29th May 2007 pending further enquires.
