39 Cambs Cannabis Factories Dismantled Over Summer

    Cambridgeshire Police'sRural Crime Action Team (RCAT) has dismantled 39 cannabis factories and seized plants worth more than £1 million over the summer.

    They have also secured 30 prosecutions for various offences, ranging from supplying or producing class A and B drugs to poaching and possession of firearms, and seized 42 vehicles for being stolen or having no insurance or tax.

    In addition, 22 items of stolen farm machinery, including plant and trailers, have been recovered – and all between April and September.

    RCAT sergeant Craig Flavell said: “These statistics are testament to some great proactive policing and help reinforce that our officers can’t be everywhere, but could be anywhere.

    “Our work has helped take drugs off the streets and recover stolen vehicles and power tools - often a big concern in rural communities across Cambridgeshire."
