Officers would urge local residents and businesses to be vigilant to suspicious activity and anyone with information about drug-related activity in their community should contact Suffolk police.
The signs to spot include a strong or sickly sweet smell in the air; buildings with windows constantly blocked off; high levels of heat and condensation and the constant buzz of ventilation. Such operations would most likely have people coming and going from an address at unsociable hours too.
Anyone with information should contact Suffolk police, quoting crime number 37/68775/20
Members of the public who have concerns or information regarding the production or sale of illegal drugs in their community, should contact their local policing team. Details can be found on the force’s website: http://www.suffolk.police.uk/your-area
