Police find scores of plants: no arrests

DETECTIVES are investigating a cannabis farm discovered in an off-shore owned £2million Hampstead house.

Officers and council chiefs found a cannabis farm in Frognal Close with dozens of plants.

The New Journal understands that they found “a house within a house”, in which the plants had been kept.

One neighbour said: “I could not believe it when I saw what had happened and what was in there. We’d had no idea.”

Pictures taken by an eyewitness to the bust show a sophisticated lighting, watering and extraction system in place. The home had been the subject of a council investigation stretching back for several months.

Police were alerted after the council gained access, but six weeks after a raid on February 4, officers have made no arrests.

Companies House reveals that the property is owned by a company registered in the British Virgin Islands, with a court order in place over any future sale.

“Enquiries into the circumstances continue,” a Metropolitan Police spokesman said.
