A man has been arrested after officers found around 150 cannabis plants at a home in Mansfield.
Police were in Portland Street, Mansfield, when they began to get suspicious about a property after spotting signs of a cannabis den and a person inside.
Officers forced entry into the property and eventually found 150 plants and discovering electricity had been bypassed. A man was also found in the loft space, according to Nottinghamshire Police.
A 30-year-old man was subsequently arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis following the incident, which happened just before 3.30am on Monday (February 14).
Sergeant Adam Cooper, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Work has been ongoing throughout the day to seize and remove the cannabis and it is really positive for the community that this is now out of circulation.
“Possessing controlled drugs in itself is an offence, but it can also be a sign of wider serious organised criminality.
“This is why we act so robustly and are committed to acting on information around this.
“A man remains in custody and our inquiries into the find are ongoing. We would continue to urge people to come to us with information or concerns about crime in their area through 101 or by speaking directly to local officers.”
