A CANNABIS farm has been busted in South Elmsall.

Plants were found growing in a house on High Street when officers raided it last Wednesday at about 4pm.

They were growing in an upstairs bedroom and in a garage attached to the house.

Growing equipment was also seized during the raid and later destroyed.

A 52-year-old man was arrested at the scene.

Insp Geoff Carter, of the south east neighbourhood policing team (NPT), said: “This is an example of our team following up on all community intelligence.

“Any information that comes through about cannabis farms, we’ll follow it up.”

Anyone with any information about drugs should contact police on 101, or CrimeStoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
