A CANNABIS cultivation has been found in Pitsea.
Officers from Basildon’s Community Policing Team executed a warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act yesterday afternoon.
A spokesman for the team said: “We were happy with our little find however we had to take extra precaution as we discovered that the electricity had been bypassed.
“Feeling in a good mood, we even cleaned up the mess from the soil and plant before we left.”
A man has been reported for cultivation of cannabis and abstracting electricity in connection with the incident.
