A cannabis factory has been uncovered in Co Tyrone.

A large number of cannabis plants were discovered inside two adjacent properties on Main Street, Sixmilecross, at around 7.30pm on Friday.

Sergeant Johnny Hamill said: “We have now seized plants with an estimated value in the region of £50,000 and have dismantled a sophisticated growing operation which was spread across two houses in the centre of the town.

We will continue to do everything possible to prevent the supply of drugs and identify those involved Sergeant Johnny Hamill

“I would like to thank the member of the local community who came forward and made us aware of their concerns about these properties.

“We will continue to do everything possible to prevent the supply of drugs and identify those involved, while at the same time make people aware of the real danger posed to their health and their lives by illegal drugs.

“I would appeal to anyone who is aware of any information about the supply of drugs to contact local police on 101, so we can work together to do something about it.”
