Police found a huge cannabis farm inside a building in Basildon during a raid.
Officers from Essex Police’s south disruptor team made the discovery on Friday (March 25) after carrying out a warrant at a property in the Long Lynderswood.
They found hundreds of cannabis plants inside, with officers estimating the plants had a combined value of more than £130,000.
Llesh Kaci, 24, of Long Lynderswood, has since been charged in connection with the find.
He has been charged with producing a Class B drug and made his first court appearance at Chelmsford Magistrates’ Court yesterday (Saturday March, 26)
