A suspected cannabis factory has been discovered at a flat in Tottenham.

Police officers swooped on the property at Stellar House in High Road N17 on Friday as part of Operation Hawk.

Members of the Northumberland Park Safer Neighbourhoods Team and Neighbourhood Policing Team 3 forced entry to the address in the early hours of the morning and found 16 small plants, suspected to be cannabis, being cultivated, as well as bags of a substance believed to be cannabis.

Ventilation ducts and high intensity lighting were also in place. The substances and equipment were seized.

The electricity meter had been tampered with and officers arranged for the electricity company to attend and make the supply safe.

A 39-year-old man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of producing cannabis and abstracting electricity. He was bailed to return to police on March 26 pending further enquiries.

Operation Hawk is a renewed emphasis on local police tackling local crime with local information.
