Day 266 - West Midlands Police - Cracking down on Cannabis

This photo shows a Cannabis setup that was recently identified and raided by officers in Dudley.


We are working hard to remove illegal drugs from the streets and use several methods to uncover drug dens such as this one.


YOU can help us tackle drug crime by calling 101 if you see any of the telltale signs of drugs.


Here are some of the tell-tale signs of a cannabis factory that members of the public can look out for:


Strong odours coming from an address


Empty liquid fertiliser bottles or other fertiliser packaging


Tin foil, large electric lights bulbs


A constant low humming noise


Residents not living at the premises full time, only visiting for short periods each day


Bin bags with vegetable material


Powerful lights on at night


Windows blacked out or curtains drawn all day


Large silver ducting tubes coming from the property.


Call West Midlands Police on 101 if you suspect any drug activity in your area.


Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
