Cannabis farm discovered in raid

Leamington Editorial 11th Aug, 2023   0

POLICE discovered a cannabis farm when they raided a house in Warwick.

Officers found 119 plants growing during the raid in June after receiving intelligence of a cannabis grow at the property.

Twenty three year-old Deni Vapri, of Beech Grove, Warwick, was jailed for nine months after admitting producing cannabis.

Officers discovered the plants growing across four rooms. The electrics had also been bypassed.




PC Ben Avery, from the local patrol investigation unit said: “Although some people believe cannabis to be a low-level drug, here in Warwickshire Police, we take a zero tolerance to drug production and supply.

“Ultimately, these drugs would have ended up on the streets of Warwickshire and would have profited an organised crime group a considerable amount.


“Please take into consideration that drug supply coincides with the most vulnerable members of our community being exploited.

Police rely on information from the community to identify cannabis grows. They include covered up windows, excessive security measures, lots of condensation, frequent visitors often at unsociable hours.

To report suspicious activity visit www.warwickshire.police.uk/report or call 101. Or alternatively report information anonymously to independent charity Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555 111.
