Tip-off leads to cannabis plants at Shoreham property


A cannabis factory containing hundreds of plants has been found at a property in West Sussex.

Police raided the address in Buci Crescent, Shoreham, after obtaining a search warrant following a tip-off from members of the public.

They discovered about 300 plants during the operation on Thursday.

Det Insp Trevor Bates described it as a substantial find and said it would go some way towards reducing the presence of drugs on the streets of Sussex.
