Police discovered two bedrooms in a house in Brownsover had been converted into a cannabis factory.

On Wednesday, July 8, Rugby proactive CID officers visited an address in Whernside, Brownsover, Rugby where the occupant was arrested after the police discovered two of the bedrooms had been converted for the cultivation of cannabis.

The adaption of the rooms had caused damage to the property and the local residents had complained about nuisance anti-social behaviour.

On Friday, November 20, Rugby Borough Council, in partnership with the police, made an application for outright possession of the premises for breach of the tennacy agreement.

The court judgement granted a possession order where the tennant had 14 days to leave the property and he was also instructed to pay costs of £768.

Warwickshire Police said it was committed to tackling the production, use and supply of illegal drugs and other criminal acts associated with drugs. The community can help by providing information to police by contacting the 101 non-emergency number.
