OFFICERS from Barnsley located a cannabis farm last weekend with a value in excess of £1m.
At around 4.20pm on Saturday, officers from Barnsley South Neighbourhood Policing Team located the cannabis factory in an industrial unit on Hemingfield Road, Wombwell.
Enquiries are currently ongoing to establish who was responsible for the farm.
Sergeant Kev Jenkins said: “We are aware of local community concerns regarding the use of controlled drugs within our neighbourhood area and this will have a significant impact on the supply of drugs within Barnsley.”
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
