The news is the latest in a spate of cannabis-themed incidents plaguing Powys.

Dyfed Powys Police on Monday, January 15, carried out a third raid on a cannabis farm in Welshpool, finding over £150,000 worth of plans and growing equipment.

The farm was discovered at a property on the Buttington Farm Industrial Estate.

The raid comes less than a week after the police uncovered two cannabis farms in Welshpool town centre, one at the former County Times offices and another at the former HSBC building on Broad Street.

County Times:

Police believe the amount of cannabis seized at those two locations could be worth a combined total of £1 million, with the operation at the former County Times office described as “sophisticated”.

One man was arrested in connection with that operation and has subsequently pleaded guilty to producing the Class B drug. He remains in custody.
