Four arrested as police find cannabis factory and crack cocaine in Peterborough raids

The Neighbourhood Support Team (NST) discovered the cannabis factory of 128 plants worth up to about £100,000 growing at a house in Francis Gardens, Dogsthorpe, just before 7.30am on Thursday (August 19) morning.

Shortly after, the team moved on to a house in Crown Street, New England, where about 500 wraps of suspected crack cocaine worth up to about £20,000 was found, along with about £25,000 in cash.

All drugs and cash were seized, along with other evidence of drug dealing and two cans of CS gas – a prohibited weapon under the Firearms Act.

Three men, aged 20, 24 and 27, and a 22-year-old woman have all been arrested in connection with the discoveries and are currently in custody at Thorpe Wood Police Station.
