A man has been charged with production of cannabis and criminal damage after a cannabis factory was discovered by chance in Cheveley.
Officers discovered the plants on Tuesday evening (March 26) at a house in High Street, after being called there on an unrelated matter.
More than 35 cannabis plants in various stages of growth, together with growing equipment, were seized from the house.
The plants are estimated to have a street value of up to £30,000 if all were to reach maturity.
Mark Andrews, 39, of High Street, has been released on bail to appear at Cambridge Magistrates’ Court on April 16.
