Police have arrested two men in connection with the discovery of a cannabis factory in Ramsgate on Monday
The two suspects, one aged 19 and the other 49, were arrested on Tuesday afternoon at a house in Cliffsend, Ramsgate, on suspicion of conspiring to manufacture drugs.
Both men are currently at Margate Police Station assisting detectives with their enquiries.
After the raid Det Insp Nick Greenan said: "This is the largest plantation of cannabis ever uncovered in Thanet. It is a well set-up operation, with lights, an irrigation system, nurseries and several rooms with plants in various stages of growth."
Apparently, "The factory had the potential to produce millions of pounds of drugs."
On another point of local news, I hadn’t realized that Kent International Airport at Ramsgate was being “re-launched” with a roadshow this weekend, with passenger flights starting on 25th May - see www.kentescapes.co.uk/ (link on our sidebar and telephone 0845 676 0043). You can download their brochure from the website.
It seems like only yesterday that EUjet launched and let’s hope the new project is more successful than the last.
