Two hundred cannabis plants and more than £10,000 in cash has been seized after a cannabis cultivation was uncovered at a property in Hoo.
Kent Police officers working in the Medway Local Policing Team attended the address, in Vicarage Lane, on the evening of Wednesday 25 March 2020 after a Police Community Support Officer became suspicious of a strong cannabis smell during a routine foot patrol.
An occupant allowed officers to enter the house and they went on to locate 200 cannabis plants and a quantity of money that is believed to have been raised from supplying the drug.
An electrical engineer also attended to make the premises safe due to concerns electricity may be being abstracted.
A 52-year-old man from Hoo has been arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis and he remains in custody as enquiries continue.
