Detectives uncovered a cannabis factory following the search of a property in the Drumkeeragh Road area on Thursday.

"Police would also remind members of the public who own or rent property to check their premises regularly and contact police if they become aware of any suspicious or untoward activity," a PSNI spokesperson said.

Police have appealed for anyone with information relating to the illegal operation to contact them.

Funny how with all the bombs being left everywhere and the supposed stress of the police force that they can justify all this for a substance that is worthless in this state and can be used medicaly. Lol to you matt baggot.

Cannabis plants are worthless, it's the buds on the plants that are worth money so how can the PSNI say these plants are worth 180k without taking all the buds off the plants, then drying the buds out to get the right weight before giving a value. Too many factors could affect the estimation given by the PSNI. Sure some people will be take it as gospel.
