POLICE discovered a cannabis farm consisting of around 30 plants after raiding an address in Parr.

Officers executed a warrant at the property on Waterland Lane at around 7.45am on Friday morning (November 10).

Around 30 plants were found in the property.

A police spokesman said enquiries are still ongoing to locate the occupant.

The spokesman added: "Information from the public is vital, so we can continue to target cannabis cultivation and drug dealing in our communities.

"I’m sure no-one would like to live next door to these potential death traps and I'd ask again if you believe someone is using a property for this purpose, please tell us so we can take action and find those responsible for setting them up."

Following the discovery, officers have issued advice for people to detect cannabis farms.

Some of the signs that cannabis is being grown include:

• Strange smells and sounds

• Frequent and varied visitors to a property, often at unusual times

• Gardening equipment being taken into a property, such as plant pots, fertiliser, fans and industrial lighting

• Windows are sealed and covered or the curtains are permanently closed

• Heat from an adjoining property

• Birds gathering on a roof in cold weather

• Individually these activities may seem commonplace, however, together may indicate something more sinister

Anyone with any information can call police on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
