Hundreds of cannabis plants discovered at Reading home
Neighbours saw police officers running down the road with tasers
Three hundred cannabis plants were discovered when police raided a home in quiet family neighbourhood in Reading.
The semi-detached house in Armour Road, Tilehurst, was raided by officers during the morning on Wednesday, January 29.
Police officers remained at the scene throughout the day and a “whiff of what was thought to be cannabis” could be detected in the air.
According to one neighbour, who asked not to be named, officers found “five rooms full of cannabis plants”.
Other people living in the street, who did not want to be named, said they saw police officers tasers drawn and running towards the home.
Two marked police cars attended the incident, and one unmarked police car was spotted by neighbours.
Although some neighbours were aware of the operation and police presence, some were oblivious to the raid in Reading, Berkshire.
A spokeswoman for Thames Valley Police said: “Officers carried out a section 23 drugs warrant in Armour Road on Wednesday, January 29.
“More than 300 plants, believed to be cannabis, were found within the property.
“Three suspects were detained and arrested.
“All three of have since been charged with possession with intent to supply.”
Neighbours said police were due to revisit the home on Thursday, January 30.
