The Met Police in Bromley have seized 600 cannabis plants after executing a drug warrant at a farmhouse in Chelsfield.

They describe it as a ‘huge cannabis factory’ that could have yielded £250,000 a year in drug sales.

No-one was present at the property at the time of the raid.

A 26-year-old woman who arrived during the search has been arrested on suspicion of cultivation of cannabis.

A 23-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of cultivation of cannabis at an address in Orpington.

Sergeant Paul Law said:

This is a great result following concerns raised by the community. We will continue to act on information given to us by local residents and tackle the causes of crime on our borough.

Anyone with information about drugs and crime should call Bromley police on 101 or call Crimestoppoers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
