POLICE sniffed out a cannabis factory in Broad Green yesterday (Monday).
Officers from the area's Safer Neighbourhoods Team raided the flat in Nelson Close yesterday morning and found a small cannabis factory in one of the rooms, with 17 cannabis plants.
No arrests were made at the scene, but inquiries are ongoing to identify those responsible.
Sergeant Steve Ribano, from the Broad Green SNT, said: "This cannabis factory was in the initial stages of being set up, so it is good that we have been able to disrupt it at such an early stage. We will continue to make inquiries to identify the individuals that have been involved in setting this up.
"I would encourage the residents of Broad Green to contact us or Crimestoppers if they have similar concerns about drugs in their neighbourhood as we can and will take action to target those involved in the production or supply of drugs."
