Humberside Police’s Organised Crime and Proactive team, based at Clough Road police station, have arrested 11 people following the discovery of 8 cannabis farms in Hull.

Properties on Rosemead Street, Waddington Grove, Goddard Avenue, three on Philip Larkin Close, Merchants Way and Roslyn Road were all raided and hundreds of cannabis plants and equipment was seized.

9 of those arrested have already been charged and remain in custody awaiting court appearances.

£15 thousand pounds cash and £100 thousand pounds worth of equipment were seized in the past two weeks.

Detective Inspector Richard Osgerby said:

“This haul demonstrates how we react to information provided by our communities and the enormous amount of work we are doing to disrupt organised criminality and to combat drugs cultivation in our communities.

The cannabis farms are being run by serious and organised criminals and are set up in domestic houses in streets where the neighbours have suffered from the antisocial activity this type of offence caused activity.

Locating these premises, seizing property, equipment and arresting those involved disrupts this very profitable criminal activity and we will continue to do everything we can to bring drugs offenders to justice.

I make no apology for tackling this type of offending, drugs in our communities have a huge impact on the lives of others. We listen to our communities and we know what concerns them, and we will do all we can to tackle the issues that matter the most to them.

Anyone who has information about drugs being cultivated or dealt in their community can call us to report their suspicions on our non-emergency number 101.

Your information helps keep our communities safe and prevents criminal activity.  We will listen to your concerns and will take action against those responsible.

If you don’t want to speak to the police you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.  Crimestoppers are an independent charity and you can provide information to them anonymously. You could receive a reward for the information you provide”
