Cannabis farm seized in Shrewsbery

A cannabis farm with almost two thousand cannabis plants has been seized by police in Shrewsbury.

The farm was identified around 2.15pm on Friday 4 October in an empty building at Ravens Meadows.

A scene guard has been place over the weekend to allow the premises to be made safe and the plants to be removed.

The plants were of varying stages of maturity with a large amount of equipment associated with growing cannabis also seized.

Enquiries are on-going to identify those responsible for harvesting the farm.

Detective Inspector John Weaver, from Shropshire Proactive CID, said: “We’re keen to hear from anyone who may have seen anyone coming or going from the building, which is the old nightclub, in the past few days or weeks as it may be that information is crucial to helping us identify those responsible. The information we receive from the public is vital, no matter how small or insignificant it seems it all helps us build a picture to help identify the suspects.”
