A cannabis factory worth thousands of pounds has been discovered in a Dartford house.

There were 30 cannabis plants being grown in the house in Alamein Gardens in Stone when police raided the property on Monday June 25.

Upon entry they found a bedroom was being used as a hydroponics factory.

The cannabis plants being grown had an estimated street value of approximately £10,000 - £12,000.

Police investigated the house after a tip-off from Dartford council’s housing association.

Chief inspector Roscoe Walford said: “This was an excellent piece of joint work with our officers and council representatives.

“We have removed a substantial amount of drugs which would have undoubtedly ended up on the streets of Dartford.”

Police put out a warning to residents to keep an eye out for signs of possible illegal activity which include windows permanently shut from the inside, removal of large quantities of black bags, a pungent smell, frequent visits to the property and sometimes a vent coming out of the roof tiles.
