Two people from Wisbech were charged with being involved in the production of a class B drug after a large cannabis factory was discovered in Wisbech at the weekend.

Around 70 plants, thought to be worth tens of thousands of pounds, were discovered at a property in Seabank Road just before 2am on Saturday (11).

Four people were arrested when Norfolk Police made the discovery whilst searching for a “missing person”.

A Cambridgeshire Police spokesman said: “A man in his 20s and a woman in her 40s, both from Wisbech, had been arrested on suspicion of being involved in the production of the Class B drug.

“They were both later released on bail to report back to officers on March 22.

“Another man, also in his 20s, and a tennage boy were also detained on suspicion of being involved in the production of cannabis and cultivating cannabis.

“Both were later released with no further action being taken against them.”

All plants and equipment found by police were seized and moved to police headquarters.
