Officers from Lancashire Constabulary attended an address on Chapel Brow at around 9.30am yesterday (May 24). Inside the property, an old TSB bank, they discovered approximately 250 cannabis plants. These had been spread across seven rooms of the disused business premises. All plants have been seized. A 32-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of drugs and immigration act offences and investigations continue. Tragic teenager killed in freak accident ‘could have survived’ had it not been for 999 error Sgt Paul Harrison from Chorley and South Ribble Task Force attended the scene and stated: “This is an extremely sophisticated set up with all the hall marks of being done by an organised crime group. The electricity had also been bypassed and connected to an electric supply running under the pavement at the front of the premises. “We are keeping an open mind regarding the investigation and we are considering Human Trafficking and Slave Labour offences. A full forensic recovery is being carried out and we will take robust action on anyone found to be involved.” He added: “This is a significant find and we are committed to tackling large cannabis farms which often have strong links to organised crime and enable criminals to operate in our communities. “Some people may see cannabis cultivation as a minor offence but some of the dangers are often hidden, such as the risk of fires and use of electrics. Dismantling and targeting this activity will remain a priority of ours.” Operation Warrior is Lancashire Police’s response to tackling serious and organised crime in Lancashire and delivering on Police and Crime Commissioner Andrew Snowden’s Fighting Crime Plan priority of disrupting and dismantling organised crime. ‘Superman’ dad who needed brain surgery after bar attack is home weeks later after ‘amazing recovery’
