Police officers who found the remains of a cannabis factory in a Lowestoft home have appealed for witnesses who saw any suspicious activity to come forward.

Officers from the pro-active Scorpion team raided the house in Wollaston Road on Wednesday September 16 after being given a search warrant.

While inside they discovered a number of rooms had been converted to grow cannabis, although no plants or equipment were found in the property.

Cannabis lead was found, and damage had been caused to the rental property.

Police now believe the home may have been cleared of plants and equipment via the front of the house in the days, or even hours, before the warrant was executed.
