POLICE found around 500 cannabis plants in a factory set up in a Kenley house two weeks ago.
They were called to a detached house on Hayes Lane in the afternoon of September 1 after a gas engineer visiting the property to execute a warrant suspected it was being used as a cannabis factory.
A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said that officers found 400 to 500 cannabis plants in all six bedrooms of the house but no suspects were there. It appeared the house's electricity had been bypassed.
Officers seized the plants and enquiries are underway to trace the suspects.
