Police have uncovered a cannabis factory after raiding a flat in Wincheap.
Officers executed a search warrant at the property on Friday and found cannabis plants being grown in a tent along with growing equipment, including fans.
There was no one at the property and inquiries are underway to establish who had set it up.
Police are also advising residents of the tell tale signs where a cannabis farm might be operating in their area and to report any suspicions.
Signs can include windows being permanently covered from the inside and visits to the address not matching normal patterns.
They say that often a pungent smell will emanate from the building, even sometimes seeping through walls to adjacent properties.
Other telltale signs can include compost bags and other gardening equipment in the garden or close to the back door without any clear indication of normal gardening, or vents protruding from the roof tiles.
Anyone with information about suspected cannabis farms should contact their local police community support officer, call police on 101 or Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
