Saturday January 20, 2024

Over a hundred cannabis plants have been seized in a police operation to combat crime in Ravensthorpe. 

Officers from the Dewsbury Neighbourhood Policing Team are appealing for information after locating cannabis and stolen car parts following an early morning raid on a commercial property on Huddersfield Road. 

Dewsbury officers and colleagues from the district’s specialist Catch and Control team executed a warrant at premises at Calder Wharf Mills on Monday January 15 as part of an investigation into organised criminal activity. 

On entering they located a cannabis factory containing more than 100 plants.   

A number of car parts were also located with several so far confirmed to be stolen. 

Sergeant Stuart Clarke of the Dewsbury and Mirfield NPT, said: “Organised criminal activity is a blight on our communities and we are continuing to investigate following the discovery of a substantial cannabis farm, and also some stolen car parts in a police warrant on Monday. 

“Officers have now seized items from the location and I would ask anyone who has information which could assist our enquiries to contact officers at the NPT  on 101 or the Crimestoppers charity. 

“I also want to thank those who do come forwards with information and intelligence about crime in their communities. 

“Intelligence is always recorded and assessed and can lead to operations such as the one executed this week.  Information about suspected criminal activity can be given anonymously to the independent Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111."
