Cannabis factory worth £1.5 million discovered in Staffordshire


A cannabis factory has been found in Staffordshire poultry barns, with drugs worth approximately £1.5 million.

Staffordshire Police discovered the huge amount of drugs after raiding Three Angels Farm, Ivetsey Road in Wheaton Aston, yesterday (December 5).

Six arrests were made, with three men detained at the scene and three other men arrested following a police search of the area.

The men were aged between 17 and 44 and were from the UK and Albania.

Inspector Richard Meaden, South Staffordshire local policing commander, said: “The investigation is at an early stage, however we can confirm that approximately 3,100 cannabis plants were recovered.

“This estimated value of this crop is estimated to be worth £1.5m.

“This is the largest and most sophisticated cannabis factory I’ve ever experienced and I am delighted we have been able to take such a large number of drugs off the streets.”

All six men were taken into custody at Watling police station.
