Cops uncovered a £170,000 cannabis factory during a raid at a Wolverhampton home.
More than 170 illicit plants were found growing within the Crawford Avenue property on Wednesday, January 20.
A 31-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of cultivating the class B drug and abstracting electricity following the bust. He remains in police custody for questioning.
The cannabis has been seized.
PSCO Tom Keogh shared a picture from the scene – which can be viewed above – in a WM Now alert.
An accompanying message said: “The Ettingshall team have executed a drugs warrant this evening on Crawford Avenue, resulting in one arrest and over 170 plants being seized! We value the plants at £1k each so that is a lot of drug money off the streets.
“All the intel for this job came from local sources and concerned community members. Your input to West Mids Police is valued and is so effective.”
A spokesman for West Midlands Police told Black Country Live: “Officers discovered just over 170 cannabis plants at an address in Crawford Avenue, Wolverhampton, after executing a warrant at around 2pm today.
