A cannabis farm has been unearthed by police during a raid in Thanet - a day after another one was discovered in the area.
Officers were called to an outbuilding in Manston Road, Ramsgate, where they found signs of a cultivation including cannabis bud.
An investigation is currently ongoing into the discovery.
A spokeman for the force said: "Kent Police attended an outbuilding in Manston Road, Ramsgate, shortly before 10am on Friday where they found a signs of a cannabis cultivation including cannabis bud.
"The bud was seized by officers along with the cultivating equipment.
"Inquiries are ongoing into the incident."
South Thanet MP Craig Mackinlay praised the officers involved, calling it "first class work", followed by "Skunk #cannabis destroys young brains".
It comes after a man was arrested by police following the discovery of a cannabis plantation during a raid.
Officers discovered the cultivation after being tipped-off about suspected drug use at a house in Margate.
The Thanet Multi-Agency Task Force raided the Northdown Road property on Thursday.
When they entered the house, they found a cultivation made up of between 15 and 20 mature cannabis plants, along with cultivation equipment which was also seized.
A 57-year-old man from Margate was arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis and taken into custody. It has since been confirmed he was released under investigation.
Sgt Karl Rimmer from the Task Force said: "We appreciate how detrimental it can be to people’s wellbeing when illegal drug activity is taking place in their neighbourhood.
"Anyone with concerns regarding criminal or anti-social behaviour is encouraged to report it to Kent Police."
