Three men arrested after police uncover Gravesend cannabis factory in Windmill Street thought to be worth £23,000.
Three men have been arrested after police uncovered a Gravesend cannabis factory thought to be worth around £23,000.
Officers on patrol were alerted to a strong smell of cannabis at an address in Windmill Street.
Upon entering the premises, around 58 cannabis plants were discovered under specialist lighting.
A 32-year-old Gravesend man, along with a 27-year-old man and a 29-year-old man, both from Essex, was arrested on suspicion of production of cannabis and suspicion of possession with intent to supply both class A and B drugs.
All three have been bailed until February 10 pending further enquiries.
PC Adrian Parsons, the Gravesend Drugs Liaison Officer who attended the address on the night, said: "Although this factory was discovered by police officers on foot patrol in the town, this is a good example of how the public can help us to deal with these types of properties.
"If you smell what you believe to be cannabis growing, just as we did on the night, then we would encourage you to report it to us so we can investigate further."
