A "LARGE-SCALE" cannabis farm has been busted by police in Herefordshire, with one man arrested, officers say

West Mercia Police said the class B drugs were being grown in Leominster.

Officers said that the local community had raised concerns so they attended the address in Leominster.

There, they found a "large-scale" cannabis farm. One man was arrested and a "significant" amount of drugs were seized.


A spokesperson said anyone who has witnessed suspicious activity or has concerns about drugs or drugs supply in their area is asked to report it to police by calling 101.

The Sentencing Council website said anyone guilty of producing a class B drug faces up to 14 years in prison custody and/or an unlimited fine.

The length of the sentence, or amount fined, will depend on various factors including the amount of drugs and the person's role in the operation.
