A large-scale cannabis farm is being investigated in Anfield after reports of an arson on Monday, according to Merseyside Police.
Specialist officers attended a house on Oakfield Road following reports of a fire on Monday morning around 9.30 am.
Around 350 cannabis plants were discovered at the address, along with growing equipment.
The farm was set across three rooms and a loft at the house, and it has been confirmed that the electricity was abstracted via bridging of the meter, which has now been made safe.
Cannabis Dismantling Sergeant Angie Norstrom:
Some of the common signs that cannabis is being grown 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
