A huge £150,000 cannabis factory has been discovered inside an industrial unit in Doncaster after officers acted on intelligence from the local community to execute a drugs warrant.

On May 2, officers from Doncaster East Neighbourhood Policing Team raided a unit in Kirk Sandall. They executed a warrant under Section 23 of the Misuse of Drugs Act.

Inside, they found around 150 cannabis plants spread across two rooms, police said.

The total estimated value of the Class B drugs was £150,000. The plants have since been recovered from the premises and destroyed. A 45-year-old man has been charged in connection with the incident.
