was by far more favourable.

SNT officers in Totton have raided a ‘cannabis factory’ found at an address in Calmore.They executed a drugs warrant at an address in By the
Wood on the Calmore housing estate.Tactical entry found vast quantities of cannabis plants inside the house that had been converted to cultivate
them. Numerous growing tents, heating equipment along with ventilation and watering tanks were removed from the premises by the SNT at Totton
Police Station. In most cases we understand that “organised gangs” are likely behind this type of cannabis factory and stopping them is a never
ending battle. When in this case they used a rented property for the landlord it is very distressing, the properties in most cases are left in poor
condition, damaged and in need of capital investment to repair the damage caused.
In nearly all instances they attempt to by-pass the electricity meter making the property concerned a very dangerous hazard for all those living
nearby. The demand for electricity is easily picked up by the supplier, so this route attempts to avoid detection. However what most drug factory
builders fail to remember is excessive heat in a property will show on infrared cameras on Arial surveillance operations.
The police advise on this type of crime is as follows “There are a number of things to look out for which may indicate a house is being used to grow
• The curtains are always shut tightly
• Lights appear to be on all the time.
• No-one is seen during the daytime at the property and no one answers the door
• Nearby residents may notice power surges and the smell of cannabis
• Lots of large bags of soil will be brought into the property but no gardening will go on outside
As we see more and more of this type of incident occurring daily nationwide it highlights just how important vigilance is. If you have any of this going
on around your property you may call crime stoppers in the strictest of confidence or contact your local Police Station.

Police at New Milton are appealing for information after a Samurai sword and electrical items were stolen in the burglary of an Ashley flat. Between
noon  on Saturday, September 21, and noon on Monday, September 24, someone broke a bedroom window of a ground floor flat, searched the
premises and left with £2,500 worth of the owner’s possessions.Included in the missing items is a 42-inch Paul Chen Samurai sword with a ray-
skin handle. Also taken were a 40-inch Samsung flat screen television and a 22-inch LG flat screen television and their remote controls. A
Blackberry Tablet, Sony HD camcorder, a Kodak pocket camera, Samsung digital camera, Phillips headphones and a memory card with martial
arts training footage also are missing. PC Graham Wilkins is leading the investigation. He said:“I need to hear from anyone who saw or heard
unusual activity or unfamiliar people in that area during the 48 hours in question. There would have been the noise of breaking glass, and the
intruder probably used a vehicle.“I am particularly interested in hearing from anyone who saw a suspicious vehicle in the area of Ashley Cross
Road or Ashtree Close and anyone who has been offered any of the items since the burglary.”
