Two cannabis farms found in Lincolnshire

Two cannabis farms found in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire.

More than 200 cannabis plants have been seized after two police raids in Gainsborough, a man has been charged in connection with one of the finds.

Police found 50 plants at a property on Waterworks Street on Friday and 170 plants at a property on Spring Gardens on Monday. The two incidents aren’t though to be linked.

22 year-old Fabio Balliu has appeared in court charged with producing cannabis in connection with the second incident he’s due back in court next month on June 15.

An investigation is still ongoing into the first incident.

Inspector for Gainsborough, Gary Brockie said: “We work really closely with the local community which helps support information we have about drugs and other crimes.

“With cannabis grows, we often find that high volumes of electricity and fertilizer are used to feed the plants which causes a real and genuine concern, and danger for those living nearby. If you suspect activity like this is taking place, please do the right thing and let us know.”
