Stevenage warehouse raid reveals 1,000 cannabis plants
A CANNABIS factory has been busted and three men arrested after police raided a Stevenage warehouse.
Officers hit the industrial unit on the Arlington Business Park in the town on Tuesday evening where they found around 1,000 plants and hydroponics equipment.
Thong Van Hoang, 57, and Son Van Tran, 38, both of no fixed abode, and Jamie Roberts, 47 of Hemel Hempstead, have all been charged with cultivating cannabis.
The men appeared before Hatfield Remand Court today (Thursday).
Stevenage Chief Inspector Richard Liversidge said: “The production, sale and use of illegal drugs can have a negative impact on law abiding communities because it can lead to other types of crime.
