Police have said there were around 80 mature plants and 420 small plants in the house.

Meanwhile, police have responded to concerns from residents that they took too long to respond to concerns about drug factories in the Corcrain-Redmanville area.

Chief Insector Davy Beck said, “When we receive information from the public we will always follow it up. This may not always be apparent to the person who reported it as searches or arrests will not always be our first course of action.

“Usually we have to spend time building a fuller picture and gaining enough detail and information to justify conducting a search or taking further investigative steps.

“In this case, the discovery of the cannabis factory on Tuesday demonstrates how successful we can be in tackling crime when local information is backed up by a thorough police investigation.”
