HUNDREDS of cannabis plants have been seized after police raided two Southampton homes.
Officers swooped on a home in Heysham Road to discover around 350 plants. A search of the next-door property revealed a further 450 plants.
Ba Le Nguyen, 45, of no fixed address, has been since been charged in connection with the factory found in the early hours of Thursday morning.
He stands accused of cultivating a Class B drug – cannabis – and was remanded to appear at Southampton Magistrates’ Court on Friday.
Police officers remained at the scene on Friday afternoon with residents saying that the street is usually quiet.
One resident, who wished to remain unnamed, said he was shocked by the police presence.
