Video: Notts Tonight’s Nolan Benson investigated the discovered cannabis grow
A man has been jailed for eight months after Nottinghamshire Police found one of the biggest cannabis grows ever discovered in the county.
He pleaded guilty to the production of class B drugs at Nottingham Crown Court yesterday (Friday May 19).
The grow was discovered at the former Saffron Tandoori Restaurant in Cordy Lane, Brinsley, after power company workers spotted an electrical surge in the area and contacted police.
Officers forced their way into the building and found a grow set out across two floors, inside five rooms on each floor, supported with around £10,000 worth of heat lamps and ventilation.
There are thought to be more than 1,000 plants, worth an overall street value of more than £0.5 million.
