Investigation launched after 200 cannabis plants discovered following disturbance report

A haul of over 200 cannabis plants was discovered and seized by officers following a report of a disturbance.

They also found that the property’s electricity had been bypassed and that cables were hanging dangerously after forcing entry into a house.

The cannabis dismantling team attended and a scene was in place whilst they seized the items and made the property safe.

Police were attending a report of a disturbance outside the property in Goodhand Crescent, Mansfield when they made the discovery. It is reported that a man and a woman left the area shortly after the incident took place, but following searches no one was found inside the property or in the surrounding areas.

An investigation is ongoing following the incident, which is believed to have happened at around 3.40pm on Thursday (12 August 2021).

Detective Constable Louise Foster of Nottinghamshire Police said: “Finding and seizing this cannabis grow is extremely positive as this now means a significant amount of illegal drugs are out of circulation.

“This is something we take seriously and investigate thoroughly, particularly due to drug production having the potential to be linked to wider, organised criminality. We always have this and the local community in mind when taking these measures to force entry seize the items quickly.

“The cannabis dismantling team were on scene to recover the items and house-to-house enquiries have been ongoing as we work to determine the circumstances of the incident.

“Our investigation continues and we would urge anyone with information to get in touch on 101 quoting incident  631 of 12 August 2021.”
