Hundreds of cannabis plants have been found in a property in Leicester.
The plants were discovered on Wednesday in a property on Pickwell Close in the New Parks area of the city.
A 34-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident.
It is believed the growers were bypassing the electricity meter to grow the plants, which posed a serious fire risk to the property.
Leicestershire Police said an engineer was contacted and attended the property to resolve this.
A spokesman for Leicestershire Police said: “Officers executed a warrant at an address in Pickwell Close in Leicester just after 9.50am on January 9.”
“More than 100 suspected cannabis plants were recovered from the property.”
“A 34-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis. He has since been released under investigation.”
