A cannabis ‘factory’ on Foster Hill Road was raided today, with officers seizing thousands of pounds worth of the class B drug.
One man was arrested on suspicion of the cultivation of cannabis and is currently in police custody.
This was a planned operation by the Central Intelligence Bureau, owing to concerns from residents.
Sergeant James West, who led today’s activity, said: “We have acted upon reports from neighbours about concerns of illegal activity and drug cultivation in this area and as a result have seized potentially thousands of pounds worth of class B drugs.
“Without vital intelligence like this, this cannabis may otherwise have made it to the streets of Bedfordshire and continued to feed the wider network of criminality and exploitation that goes hand in hand with drug crime.
“We are committed to clamping down on drugs and would encourage all residents to report any suspicious activity in their area.”
