Two males were arrested in Bradford yesterday after police raided a property with a marijuana farm worth £150,000 inside.
Over 300 cannabis plants were seized by officers who executed a warrant at the address yesterday.
The raid, part of Programme Precision, which aims at tackling serious and organised crime, saw two males detained by West Yorkshire Police (WYP).

The video published on WYP’S main Twitter account shows an officer cutting opening a shutter made of corrugated metal with a jigsaw tool.
The video shows what looks like a basement containing a huge well-lit fanned room filled with hundreds of cannabis plants as far as the eye can see.
It also shows a dirty and untidy kitchen area and a small bedroom with drink bottles surrounding the bed.
A West Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: “Our officers executed a warrant at a property on Hammerton Street, Bradford, yesterday.
“Inside the property they discovered significant cannabis grow, with a potential street value of £150,000 once fully grown. The operation was part of Programme Precision which is aimed at tackling serious and organised crime across West Yorkshire. Two men were arrested.”
