Two people were arrested following the closure of a cannabis factory in Manor Park this week.
The East Quadrant Safer Neighbourhoods team discovered the Cannabis factory in Gladding Road on Monday after executing a drugs warrant following a number of anti-social behaviour complaints from the local community.
Once inside the property police discovered cannabis growing in three of the bedrooms and the electricity meter had been by-passed.
Officers seized the Cannabis plants and drug paraphernalia.
A 31-year old man and a 29-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of producing a controlled class B drug and abstracting electricity.
They were taken into custody at an east London police station where they were later bailed to return on a date in early April pending further enquiries.
Detective Sergeant Dean Musgrove, of East Quadrant SNT, said: “My officers are actively listening to resident’s problems, armed with this kind of information we can actively disrupt this kind of criminality. “Newham police has a zero tolerance approach towards drugs and we will continue to act swiftly to arrest offenders and reduce crime, making Newham a safer place to live, visit and work.”
