Officers received a surprise when they entered a cannabis factory in Thetford after finding the toilet had been blocked with cannabis buds.

Police discovered two factories on Sunday, March 3, in Boston End in Thetford and Ash Close in Brandon.

Three men, two of whom were in their 30s and one in their 40s were arrested and taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre where they remain in custody.

On Monday evening, Sergeant Marcus Wall, of Norfolk police, wrote in Twitter post that more cannabis had been found in a vehicle and “the electricity supply has been bypassed at the addresses”.

He said a further arrest had been made.

Following the discovery of the first factory in Thetford, officers said they were led to another property in Brandon where they found the second factory.

Sgt Marcus Wall, who was a member of the team going into the factories, said: “Not one but two cannabis factories found overnight by me and the team, one in Norfolk and another in Suffolk.

“Three currently in custody. Details to follow after enquiries are conducted today but an unorthodox hiding place located.”
