Alert message sent 09/01/2020 14:15:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

Today we have been removing more than a hundred large cannabis plants from a house in Gordon Road, Derby.

The plants were found yesterday, Wednesday, 8 January, after a drug search was conducted at the address following community intelligence was received about suspicious activity at the house.

A  29 year-old man from Allestree was arrested, interviewed and released pending further investigation.

Sergeant Tony Owen, from the Rose Hill Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “We will always take such information seriously and take positive action.

“As well as being illegal, such activity is also dangerous as very often involves diverting the electricity supply, causing a fire risk to occupants and others in the area.

“We acted quickly on information received from the public and are very grateful for this. Please report any suspicious activity and we will actively enforce and target those individuals responsible

“I am aware that our actions have caused some disruption to neighbouring properties but I am sure that the community will understand our actions were necessary.”
