A cannabis factory in Fulwood has been busted.


Preston Police raided an address in the city – which has not been revealed – during Tuesday (25 June).

They uncovered more than 240 cannabis plants at the address in Garrison Road.

A 37-year-old man inside the property tried to escape police but was caught and arrested on suspicion of cultivating and remains in custody.

A police spokesman said: “Cannabis cultivation affects the local and wider community by often exploiting vulnerable adults and children who are involved in the dealing of such drugs.

“Discovering set-ups such as this allows us to take positive action against the drug trade and keeps a large amount of drugs off the streets of Preston which is worth a substantial amount of money.”
