This is the massive cannabis farm discovered at a luxury £850,000 mansion on ‘Millionaire’s Row’ – one of the most expensive properties ever used to grow the plant. Brazen criminals were caught growing 300 plants worth more than £100,000 in a luxury four-bedroom home on the exclusive street in Barnalby le Beck, North East Lincolnshire. Police seized the marijuana and arrested two Vietnamese teenagers aged 16 and 18 at the house after a tip-off from a member of the public. Neighbourhood Policing Sergeant Colin Jarratt said the number of plants found in the detached village home indicated that a drugs racket of a ‘large commercial scale’ had been operating from the sought-after property.
Owner Dawn Wilson said she was ‘horrified’ to find that her beautiful Waltham Road house had been turned into a drugs factory, with the electricity supply bypassed so the racket would not be discovered. ‘This is a huge shock,’ she said. ‘I just can’t believe what has been going on. ‘I’ve been renting the house out since August. This is a nice house and it is in a lovely area. You wouldn’t think that someone would use it grow cannabis – it is just unbelievable.’ Humberside Police stormed the home through a back door at about 8.30am yesterday and and specialist crime officers were called.
