ANOTHER cannabis farm has been uncovered in Halifax.

Police found 140 suspected cannabis plants after reports of a break-in.

Officers were called to a building off Hopwood Lane after a member of the public called saying someone was trying to get in.

When police arrived, they found the suspected plants.

A 45-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of producing cannabis.

He was being questioned yesterday.

Sergeant John Simpson, from Halifax Central neighbourhood policing team, urged people who had suspicions about crime in their area to get in touch.

“Most cannabis growing operating are found after information from the public,” he said.

He urged people to look out for people coming and going from disused buildings at odd times of the day and night.

Anyone with concerns should call their neighbourhood policing team via 0845 6060606 or CrimeStoppers, where information can be passed on anonymously, on 0800 555111.
