CANNABIS worth hundreds of thousands of pounds was discovered inside a Matchborough factory on Monday, September 28.

Three men aged 17, 24 and 26 have been charged with production of the Class B drug and appeared in court today.

Police say the three men were living inside the property at the time.

Officers discovered ten rooms specially set up for growing the drug inside the factory on Washford Mill Trading estate.

Police raided the building.

Sergeant Dave Roberts said: “I am very pleased with the outcome of the warrants and the arrests we have made.

“Drugs and drugs supply blight our communities and we will continue to do all we can to disrupt the supply of them onto our streets.

“Despite the current covid related restrictions we will continue our work hard to target those suspected of causing the most harm in our communities and to tackle serious and organised crime.”
