Cannabis grow discovered in Leyland

Tuesday, January 24, 2023

Officers from South Ribble’s Neighbourhood Policing Team have executed a Misue of Drugs Act warrant at an address in Leyland, uncovering substantial cannabis grow.

As a result of information from the public, officers gained entry and found 100 cannabis plants in the attic space of the property. There was also a large quantity of harvested and dried out cannabis which has now been recovered. Evidence was also found that the electricity had been bypassed.

Sergeant Paul Harrison, from South Ribble Police, said: ‘We are determined to tackle drug crime. It has a dramatic effect on our communities, can ruin lives, fuel other crime, such as burglary and robbery, and can instil fear in our neighbourhoods.

It is thanks to information from the community that we have been able to dismantle this grow and we need the public to continue to work with us to help us tackle drug crime but informing us of any suspicious activity.”

This is just a snapshot of some of the work that our Neighbourhood teams carry out every day to help to keep us safe. Keep an eye on our channels throughout the week for more.


Operation Warrior is Lancashire Police’s response to tackling serious and organised crime in Lancashire and delivering on Police and Crime Commissioner Andrew Snowden's Fighting Crime Plan priority of disrupting and dismantling organised crime. 

It aims to target the individuals and gangs involved in crime, as well as associated issues such as violence and intimidation, drug supply, exploitation, and fraud, all of which can cause serious harm to local communities.
