Bloxwich police have arrested a local man following the discovery of a cannabis factory yesterday.

Officers searched an address on Stamping Way, off Bell Lane, Bloxwich, at approximately 8am and found a sophisticated hydroponic growing system, together with a quantity of fully grown plants, set up in an upstairs bedroom.

Another bedroom housed a makeshift power supply which was powering the equipment.

The 25-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of cultivation of cannabis and abstracting electricity and is currently helping police with their enquiries.

Sergeant John Bissell, from Walsall police station, said: “We will always act upon any information received especially where drug criminality is concerned. We are extremely pleased with today’s result and will continue our fight against this sort of crime.”

The plants seized have an estimated street value of £7,000.
