Thousands of cannabis plants in old Birmingham pub

Two men and a 14-year-old boy have been charged after police found thousands of cannabis plants during a raid in a disused Birmingham pub. Police say more than 2,000 plants along with equipment were seized from the Racecourse pub on Bromford Road, Bromford on Friday night. The two men and boy have been charged with the production of a controlled drug. This is the latest cannabis haul for West Midlands Police who set up a dedicated Drugs Investigation Team earlier this year. With help from the public, they are currently uncovering around 10 large scale cannabis farms every week. West Midlands Police have issued the following tips on how to spot a cannabis farm:

The premises have blinds drawn during the day or windows permanently covered

It seems no one lives there but people visit for short periods of time

There may be a constant low buzzing noise emanating from the premises

There may be tubes sticking out from the windows or under roofing eaves

There may be strong smells coming from the building

Large amounts of fertiliser or empty packaging around the outside of the building

Evidence of tampering with wiring

Bright lights inside the building at irregular hours

Humidity inside the premises

Bags of vegetation left outside premises

If you think you have spotted a possible cannabis farm or have information on any other drug crime police advise you to contact local police on 101.
