DYFED-Powys Police has dismantled a large scale cannabis factory and seized cannabis with a street value of £1million. A Misuse of Drugs Act warrant was carried out at a detached residential property in Clyro, Powys, on Wednesday, July 24.

A 45-year-old man from Birmingham, a 36-year-old man from Wolverhampton and a 39-year-old man from Birmingham were arrested on suspicion of production of cannabis.

They are currently in police custody Sergeant Ciaran Ryan said: “This is a significant result for police and the community of Clyro. A large amount of cannabis has been prevented from being sold on our streets. The production and supply of illegal drugs will not be tolerated or ignored by Dyfed-Powys Police. We will act on the intelligence picture we build of suspicious goings-on and will take action wherever possible.

“There are signs to look out for in a community that can signify drugs activity and I would urge anyone who suspects this is happening in their neighbourhood, to contact us.”

Some of signs of drugs activity are: – An increase in visitors or cars to a house or flat, or regularly changing residents; – Substance misuse or drug paraphernalia – Someone having new unaffordable items or clothing.
