Cannabis farm

One of the priorities for the Ashington community is for positive action to be taken on drugs by Northumbria Police.

Following information from the community a cannabis farm was recently discovered on Maple Street by the Ashington Neighbourhood Police Team.

With help from Bedlington NPT we have dismantled the farm and destroyed the plants which were found growing in the loft space of the property.  Along with the harm these drugs this could have caused the community the electricity had also been bypassed which created a huge risk of fire.

If you have any concerns around cannabis farms please call 101, report the incident online or report through Crimestoppers.  In an emergency always call 999.
