West Bridgford man in court after cannabis factory discovered in the town

A West Bridgford man has appeared in court after police dismantled a cannabis factory found inside a house.

Officers discovered around 300 plants when they executed a warrant at the home in Loughborough Road, West Bridgford, around 7 am on Monday (22 January).

Rushcliffe Neighbourhood Policing Team, assisted by Operation Reacher and Response officers, also detained a suspect when they raided the property.

Thirty-year-old Ngoc Doan, of West Bridgford, has been charged with the production of a Class B drug.

He appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday (23 January) and was remanded in custody until his next appearance at Nottingham Crown Court on 20 February 2024.

Inspector Tim Cuthbert, neighbourhood policing inspector for Rushcliffe, said: “I’m grateful to members of the public who have provided us with invaluable information prior to this warrant being executed.

“I would urge anyone who believes cannabis is being produced in their neighbourhood to get in touch. We will always listen and your information could help us take positive action.

“An important part of neighbourhood policing is forging strong links within communities to gather and develop intelligence on suspected criminality.”

Nottinghamshire Police is focusing on the work carried out by officers in the community this week as part of neighbourhood policing week of action, which runs until Sunday (28 January).

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