The brothers, Diem and Tit Hoang, were found inside the home, as were nearly 400 cannabis plants spread across five rooms. “This is another great example of the police and public working together to tackle drug crime. Officers found a sophisticated, commercial set-up capable of producing significant amounts of cannabis, but thanks to information received, these drugs never made it to the streets and this pair are now in prison,” said Sergeant Craig Flavell, a member of Cambridgeshire Police’s Rural Crime Action Team.

If you suspect something isn’t right, it more than likely isn’t,” said Flavell. Last summer, the Cambridgeshire Police busted a grow under unusual circumstances .
