Nottinghamshire Police have busted a drug production facility in Mansfield where they initially went to attend to a burglary in progress at an industrial building.

At least twelve people have been arrested on a range of charges, including cultivating cannabis, possessing with intent to distribute, conspiring to commit robbery, and wielding weapons.

Police say a team of law enforcement officers were dispatched to Midworth Street in Mansfield shortly before 05:00 am on Tuesday morning, May 30, and interrupted a break-in at an industrial building.

However, upon thorough inspection, the premises were revealed to be a large drugs’ factory.

According to Nottinghamshire police, the officers pursued several suspects away from the scene and took them into custody.

It is said that upon entering the building, several hundred cannabis plants were subsequently found.

The police declared that the plants were to be destroyed.
