Written byJORDAN DAY

Another cannabis factory has been discovered in Soham.

Around 300 cannabis plants have been recovered from a property in Hasse Road following two police warrants at 4am this morning (Thursday).

A 56-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis and possession of a firearm.

A 59-year-old woman was arrested at a property in Mepal on suspicion of producing cannabis.

Both are in custody at Parkside Police Station.

Sergeant Will Davis, who is based in Ely, said: “We carried out a raid at a property in Soham during the early hours of this morning (Thursday) and discovered approximately 300 cannabis plants.

“We are not linking this finding to the other cannabis factory which was found in Regal Drive last week however this should go as a warning that we will not tolerate the use and supply of drugs in our area and we will do all we can to disrupt this kind of activity.”
