In a series of posts on Facebook, Fareham Police said: ‘This morning Fareham Neighbourhood team have conducted a warrant at an address in Chamberlain Grove.
‘We received information that the address was a possible cannabis factory. Following this we built evidence and presented this to court, who granted a search warrant.
‘After a dynamic entry, one person was detained and arrested after a full professional hydroponic setup was discovered. The whole premises was converted including the loft and full of cannabis plants.
‘Whilst we are keen to see people take an active interest in gardening and being green fingered, this is not the correct way to indulge your hobby!
‘Drugs and the people associated with them ruin lives.’
