If you suspect that cannabis is being grown where you are, you can watch a video in which Matt Brown, head of our Cannabis Dismantling Team (CDT), explains some of the signs: https://youtu.be/rc59i2dsZHM
Some of these signs are: • Strange smells and sounds • Frequent and varied visitors to a property, often at unusual times • Gardening equipment being taken into a property, such as plant pots, fertiliser, fans and industrial lighting • Windows are sealed and covered or the curtains are permanently closed • Heat from an adjoining property • Birds gathering on a roof in cold weather • Individually these activities may seem commonplace, however, together may indicate something more suspicious
