Police Give Tips!

Cannabis factories are increasingly being found in residential properties. Electricity meters are usually bypassed and the lighting equipment used to grow the plants are often poorly wired and pose a high risk to the individuals involved in the cultivation but are also likely to be a fire hazard to neighbouring houses.

Tell tale signs of a cannabis factory:
Blinds drawn day and night.
A constant low buzzing from inside the property.
Strong odour emanating from the property.
Air ducting tubes protruding from the property.
Bright lighting from rear windows, loft or eaves.
Large amount of fertiliser, compost or pots outside.
Tampering with electric meter or wiring.

If you have any information regarding the above please contact West Midlands Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111
