£1 million worth of cannabis found at Wolverhampton drugs factory
Police also found a homemade bench press with weights made of tins full of concrete.
An estimated £1 million worth of cannabis has been found at a drugs factory in Wolverhampton.
Officers uncovered around 900 plants at an industrial unit in East Park after being called to a suspected burglary last night.
The plants were found growing in homemade greenhouses inside an old factory building, with heaters and lights powered by wires connected to powerboards attached to sheets of chipboard.
Several large plastic ventilation ducts connected the greenhouses - some of which had partly collapsed - to the ceiling of the unit on Moore Street.
And as well as the 'professional' drugs set-up, police found a homemade gym - including an incline bench press made of wood and polystyrene and paint tins filled with concrete being used as weights.
Nobody has been detained in connection with the cannabis, but one man was arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary.
A West Midlands Police spokesman said: "Police were called to Moore Street in the East Park area of Wolverhampton just before 11pm on Monday after suspicions were raised about people entering a factory on the road.
"Upon arrival, officers recovered over 900 cannabis plants with an estimated worth of £1 million.
"A 29-year-old man arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary has been released pending further investigation.
"Enquiries remain ongoing."
