Another cannabis factory – this time thought to be worth about £650,000 – was uncovered by police in Huntingdonshire on Saturday.
Following a series of discoveries in Ramsey and Warboys over the last two weeks, Cambridgeshire police said officers from the rural crime action team "stumbled across" another cannabis farm in St Neots.
A spokesman for the force posted: "CambsRuralCops stumbled across another massive cannabis farm in St Neots. Estimated value if all plants reached maturity of £650,000. Hardly a bit of home grown."
A spokesman for Cambridgeshire police said: "At about 2.42pm on Saturday officers visited a property in Little End Road, Eaton Socon, following reports of a strong smell of cannabis.
"They discovered three large rooms containing 783 cannabis plants with a potential value of £650,000."
The spokesman said a 21-year-old man from London who was arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis, has been released under investigation.
