A CANNABIS factory was uncovered in Thornton Heath last month. Officers from Thornton Heath Safer Neighbourhoods Team (SNT) found approximately 80 plants, believed to be cannabis, after executing a search warrant on an address in Richmond Road on April 23. Two men in their 30s were arrested at the scene on suspicion of production of cannabis. Both have been bailed to return to a south London police station in late June pending further enquiries. PC Rumi Miah, from Thornton Heath SNT said: "Cannabis factories represent a real danger to the local community, both in terms of the associated criminality and antisocial behaviour they can bring into a neighbourhood, but also the physical risk they pose in terms of a fire hazard. "We will continue to target those involved in the production and supply of drugs in Thornton Heath and would encourage any local residents with concerns about the presence of drugs to either contact police or Crimestoppers. "We can and will take action where we have strong enough suspicion drugs are present."
