As police approached the detached house, they noticed a man placing large bags inside a wheelie bin. He then ran off into Crystal Palace Park.
Sergeant Rob Goodwin from Bromley Police said: “This seizure represents a major and unexpected dent in the network of cannabis supply in the South East London area and was brought about through proactive local neighbourhood policing”.
Met Police have uncovered a huge drug factory in south London after driving past a house and noticing a strong smell of cannabis. When they went inside the property near Crystal Palace Park, this is what they found.
Four large rooms were set up to grow cannabis, with in excess of 500 fully grown plants inside.
