Significant cannabis grow found in Fleetwood

Wednesday, November 8, 2023

Yesterday evening (Tuesday 7th November 2023), Fleetwood Neighbourhood Policing Team were proactively patrolling anti-social behaviour hotspots. Officers noticed significant electrical wiring near a group of properties, and a strong smell of cannabis, on Victoria Street.

Upon entering a property, officers found a cannabis grow with over 100 plants inside. The plants have an estimated value of up to £150,000.

Due to concerns with the electricity, Electricity North West attended the property to make the area safe.

No arrests have been made and enquiries are ongoing.
