An investigation is underway after thousands of cannabis plants with a street value of around six million pounds were found at a derelict factory in Frampton.
Lincolnshire Police officers received a call on 22 April after reports of suspicious activity and a warrant was executed the following day.
Upon entering the property on West End Road, officers discovered around 7,000 plants being cultivated in the 40,000 sq ft unit.
Two males, aged 15 and 33, were arrested on suspicion of the production of a controlled drug and have been released on police bail. Enquiries are still ongoing.
Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Inspector Paul Coleman said: “This is a significant find and I am pleased that this operation allowed us to take out a huge amount of cannabis out of circulation to prevent criminals from profiting from them.”
