POLICE in Braintree have issued a photograph of a man they want to question in relation to a cannabis factory.

The drug operation was discovered after the owners of a house - who had rented the Clare Road property out - returned to check it on May 23.

On their arrival, an Asian man fled the scene and when they entered the building they found that two of its three bedrooms were being used to grow cannabis, with 129 plants in the house.

“I would urge anyone who recognises him, or who saw any suspicious activity at the location between April 23 and May 23, while the property was rented out, to contact me.”
