Police raided a property in Hopwood Street on Thursday morning to find 32 plants.

The plants were in the bedroom, along with lighting and hydroponic set-up.

Inspector Jill Halliwell from Preston Police said: “We carried out a warrant at this address after residents told us about suspicious activity, including an unusual smell coming from the property.

“We are committed to taking drugs off the streets and this highlights the importance of residents working with us in our fight against crime. If anyone suspects drug use in their community, I would urge them to report it to us so that we can take action.”

No arrests were made and police are making inquiries.

If you have concerns about drugs, you can report it to the police on 101 or to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
