Huge drug bust in Beverley Road

Police have seized over 250 cannabis plants from a property in Beverley Road, Hull, following a huge drug bust.

The factory was uncovered after officers from the local team spotted suspicious activity whilst out on regular patrols in the area.

Having carried out enquiries, the team carried out a misuse of drugs act warrant at the address on Sunday, June 21.

A total of 285 plants were found inside the address along with around 4kg of carefully cut dried cannabis.

This was all immediately seized by police officers.

Community Beat Manager PC Tim McGowan said:

“We know the impact that cannabis cultivation and the associated crime that often goes with it, can have on a community which is why we take it so seriously.

“This was a sophisticated set up, with modifications made to the building including the removal of a stair case, to facilitate the grow.

“We are pleased to say that this activity has been disrupted and the cannabis grown here is now off our streets and cannot be used for criminal gain.

“We will not tolerate anyone that commits offences in our communities and I would encourage anyone with concerns or information about crime to get in touch so that we can investigate and take action.

“If you have information about crime or ASB in your area please call us on 101 to report it.

“If you would prefer to report information anonymously you can do so via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. In an emergency always dial 999.”

This most recent drug bust on Beverley Road is part of Humberside Police’s Operation Galaxy.

It follows a series of police raids on properties in the Humber region, which in the past few weeks have resulted in over £1m worth of drugs being seized.
