Two men arrested after police raid County Durham property and find hundreds of cannabis plants

Two men have been arrested after police raided a County Durham property and discovered hundreds of cannabis plants.

Officers from Consett, Stanley and Chester-le-street Neighbourhood teams executed a magistrates warrant at an address in Langley Park. The warrant was granted due to intelligence received from members of the public and Durham Constabulary’s Police Intelligence Unit regarding suspicious activity at the property.

Just under 600 cannabis plants were discovered by police, which spanned eight rooms. Two males were arrested at the scene and taken to custody.

A Durham Constabulary spokesperson said: “Northern Power grid attended due to the electricity being bypassed. Bypassing electricity can cause serious risk of fire to the address and surrounding properties. The electrics were made safe so officers could begin to dismantle the grow.

“Do you know the signs of a cannabis grow? Condensation in windows; strong smell of cannabis; no snow on roofs in winter months; unsociable comings and goings If you notice something suspicious in your community always speak up.”

Report it by calling 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
