Officers from the Grange ward Safer Neighbourhoods team – together with colleagues from elsewhere in Southwark – executed a warrant in Alscot Way early on Friday morning.

Police were acting on intelligence received that the property was being used as a cannabis factory.

Officers found a total of 90 plants which were all seized and taken back to a local police station where they will be destroyed.

Officers also found that the occupant had tampered with the electricity meter.

No-one has been arrested made as no-one was in the home at the time of the raid.

The investigation continues and anyone with information should call Sgt Chris Iliffe on 020 8721 2439 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
