West Bridgford: Cannabis factory worth over £200,000 found in four rooms of property

A man has been charged after neighbourhood police acted on information from members of the community to shut down a large cannabis grow.

Officers discovered more than 200 plants when they raided a home in Alford Road, West Bridgford, around 7.45am on Tuesday (2 April).

The Class B drug was being grown in the dining area downstairs and in three bedrooms upstairs.

Rushcliffe Neighbourhood Policing Team also detained a suspect when they executed a warrant at the house.

Thirty-year-old Dung Nguyen, of Alford Road, has been charged with the production of a Class B drug and abstracting electricity without authority.

He is due to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court today (3 April).

Sergeant Che Sands, of the Rushcliffe Neighbourhood Policing Team, said:

“I’m grateful to members of the public who have provided us with invaluable information.

“The team has then developed this intelligence to execute a successful warrant which has put a large cannabis producing enterprise out of action.

“Whenever we discover grows of this nature we also carry out further inquiries with the owner or landlord of the property. We will not hesitate to prosecute anyone we discover has been allowing their property to be used as a drugs factory.

“I would urge anyone who believes cannabis is being produced in their neighbourhood to get in touch. Your information could be a vital missing piece of the jigsaw which allows us to take positive action.”

All the cannabis seized from the address will be destroyed and the equipment used to power the grow removed.
