UK: Industrial-scale cannabis farm and two Quails seized Oldham!

Are illegal growers employing Quails as cannabis farmers these days?


Half a million pounds worth of cannabis has been seized in Oldham town centre along with two quails, which are now in the care of the RSPCA.

An industrial-scale cannabis farm was discovered by police on Rock Street this week.

On Wednesday, around 600 plants were found inside and officers say they believe it is worth an estimated street value of £500,000.

During the inspection, two quails were also found, seized by police and handed over to the RSPCA to be re-homed.

No arrests have been made and enquiries are ongoing at this stage.

Detective Inspector Nick Helme from the Oldham district Challenger team said: “This find was off the back of some intelligence we received from the public, we acted quickly and thankfully the team managed to get into the address and recovered a substantial amount of the Class B drug.

“Cannabis farms can be a substantial fire hazard with the amount of electricity that is being extracted to grow the plants.
