£300k of suspected cannabis seized at Bradford on Avon
Police have seized what they believe to be up to £300,000 worth of cannabis plants in a raid in Bradford on Avon.
Officers executed a warrant at an industrial unit on farmland just off Leigh Road West shortly before 1pm yesterday.
They found two large shipping containers housing around 250 plants, with many in the drying-out phase ready to be cultivated.
If they prove to be cannabis, the plants would have an estimated street value of £250,000 to £300,000.
