Closure Order secured at Coventry house used as cannabis factory

Coventry Editorial 18th Dec, 2023   0

A CLOSURE order has been secured against a property on Villiers Street after cannabis grows were uncovered.

Police found cannabis when they were called to the property on Tuesday, November 21 following reports of a burglary.

The order means no one will be allowed to enter the property, which had previously been found to be growing cannabis in 2021, for at least the next three months.

The court felt criminal activities may be repeated and recognised the potential risk to neighbours.

The three-month closure is likely to cost the owners around £3,000.

North East Insp, Sarah Stobbart, from the Coventry Neighbourhood Policing Unit, said:“We are continuing to take action against drug dealing and the types of offending which go along with it.




“Cannabis factories pose a significant risk to the properties nearby and the wider community.

“The electricity in these premises is often dangerously bypassed and can cause catastrophic fires which spread to neighbouring houses.”
