“The joint effort is another great example of how our strong links with our communities can lead to high valued results. Drugs can have a devastating impact on communities and the Parson Cross Team endeavours to tackle this deep-rooted issue in all its forms.
“We don’t want to sound high and mighty, however criminal 'groups' involved in the growth industry of growing of cannabis are often involved in other serious organised crime and don’t care about the harm their activity can cause to the most vulnerable people in our society and this can often include the persons who are forced into their respective activities.
“Please remember we target the right people for the right reasons at the right time and will continue to do so.”
Officers are appealing for information.
They added: “Should you have any information and intelligence regarding this budding industry within your area then please feel free to contact us directly or indirectly via crime-stoppers on 0800 555111.”
