West Midlands Police discovered around 100 cannabis plants following the raid at an address in Fibbersley just after 5pm.

It is believed officers discovered the cannabis factory after PCSO patrols detected a strong smell from nearby.

A man, who wished to remain anonymous, witnessed police exiting a property on Tuesday. He said: "There was 15 bags of weed taken out the address. It was shocking to see."

Photographs from inside the factory showed dozens of cannabis plants growing inside the building, alongside wires and tubes.

Willenhall WMP tweeted: "Thanks to the PCSO’s from @WednesfieldWMP. You were right, there was a strong smell!"

West midlands Police is appealing for anyone with information to get in touch.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police by quoting log number 1770 of October 7.
