Greater Manchester Police

Greater Manchester Police have found a drug’s farm with an estimated street value of £2 million during a raid in Cheetham Hill.

The North Intelligence Unit and Serious and Organised Crime Group executed a warrant at a property located next to Strangeways on Wednesday morning.

Officers then seized hundreds of cannabis plants after stumbling on the farm at the property which is on Lord Street, Cheetham Hill, Greater Manchester Police said.

Sergeant Daniel Cullum said: “This morning’s action has seen us disrupt the drugs supply chain and prevent a very large quantity of cannabis reaching the streets.

“If you suspect drugs are being cultivated where you live, get in touch with police immediately.”

GMP confirmed that two men, one aged in his 30s and the other in his 40s, were being held on suspicion of drugs and firearms offences.

The investigation continues.
