Police in Halifax have smashed a suspected cannabis-growing operation, seizing 667 plants.

Officers went to two houses, one on Fenton Road and the other on Autumn Street, both off Queens Road in Halifax, at 2.38pm on Tuesday and discovered the suspected cannabis-growing factory inside.

Inspector Derrick Oldham, who leads Halifax Central neighbourhood policing team, said: “Inquiries are continuing to see who was behind the operation but this means that a significant amount of the suspected drugs have been taken off the streets.

“If people have suspicions about cannabis-growing in their area then get in touch - if you let us know about it we will take action.

“A suspicion might just be smelling the drug every time you walk past a particular property or seeing people come and go from the house at irregular hours during the day.”

Anyone with concerns should contact police on 101 or CrimeStoppers, where information can be passed on anonymously on 0800 555111.
