How to spot a cannabis factory when it snows

It’s snowing and communities resemble a winter wonderland.

The trees, cars and roofs of homes and properties are covered in a layer of thick snow except one.

The exposed dry bare tiles may be down to an insulation issue or there maybe a sinister reason.

The lack of snow could be due to it being used as a cannabis factory.

The ‘substantial’ cannabis find in Brierley Hill

Police are particularly pleased when it snows as the heat generated by cannabis farms melt the snow and leave them sticking out like a sore thumb.

Back in March 2018, cops raided a home in Brierley Hill and uncovered a haul of cannabis plants with a street value of £100,000, after they became interested in the absence of snow on the roof.

Tell-tale signs of a cannabis factory include:

*A strong, sweet, leafy odour coming from an address.

*A constant low humming noise.

*Windows blacked out or curtains drawn all day.

*Large silver ducting tubes coming from the property.

*Powerful lights on at night.

*Residents not living at the premises full time, only visiting for short periods.

*Fertiliser regularly being taken to the property.

To report a cannabis farm ring police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

A tweet by Inspector Barton, constituency inspector for Dudley West, said: “Snowy weather is a great giveaway to properties growing cannabis!

“No snow on the roof and a distinctive smell coming from the property.”

West Midlands Police said ‘community intelligence’ had helped lead them to the property, with its mysteriously snow-free roof.

This picture above was taken by officers in Haarlem near Amsterdam, and has been shared on social media by Kingsbridge police, who said: “If we are lucky enough to have some decent snow over the next few days, and if anybody notices a sight like this, can you let us know.”

Police in the UK have been known to use their helicopter patrols to look out for similar suspiciously frost-free roofs.
