Police officers from Northamptonshire Police discovered a cannabis factory worth over £300,000 during a raid on an address in Corby last week (Wednesday, January 31).
Officers executed a search warrant at the address on the Kingswood Estate under the Misuse of Drugs Act and found 525 cannabis plants.
Armando Musa, 28, was arrested during the warrant and subsequently charged with Production of Class B under the Misuse of Drugs Act. He is currently held on remand in custody.
Sergeant Jon Hodgson from the Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: "Obtaining this warrant was a direct result of information we received from the community in Corby Town whose neighbourhood had become blighted by this drugs operation.
“Over £300,000 worth of cannabis plants were found at this address so I am pleased that we have managed to disrupt this organised criminal network and help take drugs off our streets.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to encourage people to report suspicious behaviour to us as our success here was a direct result of engagement with local residents.”
