This is the moment a police officer batters down the door to a home that was being used as a cannabis factory.
The door is completely smashed out of its frame as the officer uses a sledge hammer to get inside.
The drugs raid was conducted at the property on Versey Close in Water Orton on January 5.
Officers found the home empty of plants – but discovered evidence that the haul of cannabis inside had recently been harvested.
No arrests have been made yet, but enquiries are ongoing.
Atherstone and Coleshill Police posted the video on Facebook.
The post read: “Officers conducted a drugs warrant in Water Orton this afternoon. The property was being used as a cannabis factory with the electricity also being illegally abstracted. Officers were required to force entry after the landlord could not be contacted and unsurprisingly no one was answering the door. Enquires are on going.”
