During the morning of Thursday 1 June 2023, a search by the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate was carried out at a disused commercial site in School Lane.

The building was found to contain rooms filled with cannabis cultivations believed to be in excess of 900 plants.

Officers from the Thanet Task Force and the Divisional Support Unit seized the drugs and dismantled the cultivations in the rooms, clearing them of any equipment.

Three arrests were made on suspicion of cultivating cannabis: a 35-year-old man and two men aged 22.

They all currently remain in custody while enquiries continue.
