Cannabis Grows

Alert message sent 05/03/2019 17:49:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary

Members of your local Safer Neighbourhood Teams have spent time dismantling 3 cannabis grows in the last week. These are houses that are adapted from the purpose of growing cannabis in them.
Would you know how to spot one ?? If you see the following at an address, then we need to know -

* Ventilation and lighting equipment being taken into the address
* Lots of grow bags, bags of soil and large plant pots
* Absence of an occupant, or coming and going to address in the very early hours
* Windows covered up at all times
* Lighting being seen on at the address 24/7
* Condensation at the windows
* Unusual levels of heat
* Fans being heard (would need to be a house joint on and can often be heard in loft spaces)
* A sweet, sickly smell

If you know of an address with all or most of the above, then we need to be aware. You can of an incident on 101, or contact .

Thank you Citizen
