Northamptonshire police in England recently discovered a large cannabis farm after receiving a tip-off from the public. So large in fact, that there were roughly 12 rooms with plants reaching well over six-feet. If you think you’ve seen a huge bust when it comes to residential grows, you haven’t seen anything yet. Be sure to check out the video below and brace yourselves for perhaps the biggest let down of your day.
Massive residential grow shut down
After receiving the tip-off, Northamptonshire police raided a residential property and discovered a massive cannabis farm. In fact, the farm was so large that the police are describing as being on an industrial scale.
Not only did the cops discover 12 rooms filled with plants reaching over 6 feet tall, but they also found cultivating equipment worth hundreds of thousands of pounds. As can be seen in the video, the setup is quite impressive.
This is a large residential property – we are talking about 10 or 12 rooms. It’s on quite an industrial scale and would have cost quite a lot of money to set up, and the reward would have in the hundreds of thousands of pounds. – Sgt. Fullerton
Of course, it didn’t take the cops very long to put five men under arrest on suspicion of cultivating cannabis and took them into custody. But that’s not even the worst part.
Every single plant, as well as the growing equipment, was destroyed. So, of course, Northants Police patted themselves on the back as if they saved the public from something harmful,
Northants Police can only do work like this once we get the information from the community and it’s great news that the community have told us about this property and we have been able to act upon it and get the result we have today. – Sgt. Fullerton
