Sixty cannabis plants have been seized during a drugs raid in north Manchester

The drugs were found yesterday morning on a house on Roda Street when discovered a cannabis farm in an upstairs bedroom.

It is estimated the drugs had a street value of £24,000.

A 40-year-old man and 30-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis and abstracting electricity.

They were released on police bail pending further inquiries.

Chief Inspector Marcus Noden from Greater Manchester Police’s North Manchester Division said: “This warrant has enabled us to seize these plants and destroy them, ensuring they do not hit the streets and blight the local area.

“I would urge anyone who may have information as to where drugs are being grown or sold to contact police. Information that will help us tackle drug crime in your neighbourhood include the address or location where you suspect dealing or cannabis production is taking place as well as names and descriptions of the suspects and why you think they may be involved in drugs.”

Tell-tale signs of a property being used as a cannabis farm include windows being constantly covered from the inside, people visiting the property for short periods and at unusual times, no one actually living at the property, vents protruding from the roof or windows and a pungent odour in the vicinity. There may also be gardening equipment and large quantities of compost stored in the rear of the premises.
