WARRINGTON Police have warned people not to try and enter a property that was uncovered as a cannabis farm on Tuesday.

The huge cannabis farm was discovered in a property on Barbauld Street in Warrington town centre, where police seized 720 plants.

A large search was made in the area following the raid at 9am Tuesday morning – with a police helicopter being seen circling the town centre.

As of yet no arrests have been made in connection to the cannabis farm – but Warrington Police have taken to social media to warn people to stay away from the property after nine people have been arrested trying to enter.

“Since the uncovering of the large-scale cannabis farm during a warrant on Tuesday we have arrested 9 individuals in the past two days for entering (or trying to) the property,” the Warrington Police posted on Facebook this afternoon.

Warrington Police gave a warning to anyone thinking they might be able to find anything left behind after the raid.

“I would just like to point out to any would be horticulturists that at any of our Warrants we take ALL drugs and equipment,” the post continued.

“You won’t be getting any supplies for your next cannabis farm here.”
