Two cannabis factories found in Cricklewood

Class B drugs discovered in Lichfield Road and Anson Road

Brent Police have uncovered two cannabis factories after raiding separate addresses in Cricklewood.

Officers from Brondesbury Park, Mapesbury and Willesden Green Safer Neighbourhoods Team stormed the properties in Lichfield Road and Anson Road following tip-offs from the community.

They uncovered 250 plants at the address in Lichfield Road and a further 250 in Anson Road.

The hunt is on to find the occupiers of both properties.

Sergeant Rob Gibbs from Brondesbury Park and Mapesbury Safer Neighbourhoods Team said: “I am very pleased with this result.

“Due to the local residents concerns we were able to act immediately to stop this crop being harvested. “We have built a strong relationship with the local community and if it was not for their help in providing us with this information we would not have got this excellent impact.”
