Police have arrested a man and recovered a cannabis farm worth an estimated £100,000 per year in Seaforth

At around 10am yesterday, Friday, a warrant was carried out at a flat in Poplar Grove and 27 plants and equipment were seized. A 29-year-old man from Seaforth was arrested on suspicion of cannabis production and abstracting electricity and taken into custody for questioning.

Local Policing Sergeant Ian Speed said: “Any cannabis farm discovered is great news for Merseyside Police but more importantly, it is a fantastic result for our communities, within which criminals who set up these farms cause considerable misery for hard-working people who just want to earn an honest living.

“As in this case, electricity is often bypassed, causing a huge fire risk to neighbours. If you are aware of cannabis being grown in your communities, please let us know and we can remove these potential death traps.”

Some of the signs that cannabis is being grown are:
• Strange smells and sounds
• Frequent and varied visitors to a property, often at unusual times
• Gardening equipment being taken into a property, such as plant pots, fertiliser, fans and industrial lighting
• Windows are sealed and covered or the curtains are permanently closed
• Heat from an adjoining property
• Birds gathering on a roof in cold weather
• Individually these activities may seem common place, however, together may indicate something more sinister

Anyone with information on the cultivation of cannabis can call police on 101. You can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously and for free on 0800 555 111
