Cannabis grow discovered after injured man arrives at QMC

Police discovered a large cannabis grow while investigating an assault on a man.

Officers were called to Queen’s Medical Centre at around 6.50 pm on Wednesday (14 December) following reports a man had been injured.

The man presented in A&E with injuries to his hands, leg and head but refused to give any information about what had happened to him.

Officers then attended the man’s home in Bulwell, where they found cannabis growing across three separate rooms inside.

A 38-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis.

Detective Sergeant Alan Prentice, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “While growing cannabis might be seen as a victimless crime by some, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

“Cannabis production is not harmless and often has direct links to organised criminality, with vulnerable people being exploited as part of this illicit activity.

“This can also lead to people involved being put at risk of harm and violence, which affects the safety of the neighbouring community as well.

“As a force, we won’t stand for drug activity taking place on our streets and will always do whatever we can to stop those who profit from it in their tracks.

“Our inquiries are still ongoing into this incident, so we’d ask that anyone who has any information contacts the police on 101, quoting incident 598 of 14 December 2022.

“Information can also be left anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
